Ahh.. I see now.  Thank you for clearing that up for me. :)

Forgive me for asking but, does anyone know if there is a way to access the
true coordinates of page elements?

Yes, you can use offsetTop and offsetLeft properties in combination with offsetParent. Some Googling will tell you how to make it work.

For example, is it possible to access the "coords" property of an
"HTMLAnchorElement" like this:

"coords" only applies to an HTMLAreaElement, not an
HTMLAnchorElement.

Are you sure?

This lists coords for the anchor element: http://www.w3.org/TR/DOM-
Level-2-HTML/html.html

You're right, and the coords markup attribute is even allowed for A.
Looking at the original example more closely, the result is an empty string because no coords attribute is set on the A element in the markup. coords reflects an attribute value, it does not give the true coordinates of the A element. coords is meant for use with client- side image maps, and to my
knowledge only has an actual effect for AREA, not A.
