I have an element (a link actually) where on mouse over, I display a hidden layered div using Javascript. But I want this div to be located right underneath the link element.

Due to fact that the page centers horizontally, the link element is in different coordinate on the browser window depending on how the user resizes their window. So I need Javascript code to detect where this link element is (the x and the y) and then position that div on that x and y.

A reference to a tutorial or code example would be good.

Here's one example.

If you're already using jQuery for something, here's another example.
