I usually use this handy script from Quirksmode.com

function findPos(obj) {
        var curleft = curtop = 0;
        if (obj.offsetParent) {
                curleft = obj.offsetLeft
                curtop = obj.offsetTop
                while (obj = obj.offsetParent) {
                        curleft += obj.offsetLeft
                        curtop += obj.offsetTop
        return [curleft,curtop];
