    IE7 zoom vs cursor position

    Those who worked with cursor positioning probably know that IE doesn't support PageX/Y properties for cursor events. (i.e. the position of the cursor relative to the page) Common solution is to calculate them from (scrollTop + clientY).

    Problem I encountered today is that if the zoom setting in IE7 is not 100%, (scrollTop + clientY) calculation is totally off.

    Anyone know how to fix this?

    Here's some code for anyone wish to test it. As you can see clientX/Y values are relative to the view area, not the page content.
    HTML Code:
    <script type="text/javascript">
    function analyzeEvent(evt)
    	if (!evt) var evt = window.event;
    	var s = evt.clientX + ' ' + evt.clientY;
    	document.getElementById('output').innerHTML = s;
    window.onload = function ()
    	document.body.onmousemove = analyzeEvent;
    <p id='output'></p>
