    How does one identify a particular place on the display screen in terms
    of its x, y coordinates?

    No problem.
    There is a program which will also do it, but the site was down.

    If x=0 and y=0 then your position is the top left corner of the screen.
    Y is rows, X is columns.

    Depends on application, web broswer example.
    http://www.w3.org/TR/CSS2/visuren.html#fixed-positioning
    which uses top/left.

    This example is markedup with x,y shown
