Hi everyone! First of all sorry for not posting the thing below as a link, but unfortunately I don't have access to a handy website right now to upload it there.

My problem is that the html page and script below works on every browser I could put my hands on right now (that doesn't mean all of them of course, but quite some - IE, Mozilla, Opera...), except on Safari. I cannot figure out what could be the problem, because a lot of googling on the net turned up this findPos script as a fail-safe one that would work on all browsers. Safari seems to ignore this however...

Please could anyone:
1. Confirm my problem (see the contents of the layer).
2. Suggest any alternative to getting the correct position in Safari.

Thanks a lot:
Babszem.

Layer should start in

Position is
<ul>
<li>partly outside and vertically in the middle of the cell</li>

Conclusion: <code>findPos ()</code> functions only return position of "Content" text relative to table upper left corner. (I asked for content <u>cell</u>.) Why?
