Image offsetLeft & offsetTop

We can get the position of an image by reading its offset values. We will get two positions one is offsetLeft and other one is offsetTop. offsetLeft give us distance of the image from left edge of the screen. Same way offsetTop give us the distance of the image from top edge of the screen. We will use getElementById to get the image object and its positions. Here is the code.
In the above code i1 is the image , To read out value of offsetTop and offsetLeft we will use one Div layer and display the values inside it. Here is the code.
<title>Demo of Image offset in JavaScript</title>
<script language='JavaScript' type='text/JavaScript'>
function disp_img(str) {

var x=document.getElementById('i1').offsetLeft;
var y=document.getElementById('i1').offsetTop;
document.getElementById("msg").innerHTML="X: " + x  + " Y : " + y

<body >

<img src=images/help.jpg id='i1' style="position:absolute; left: 500; top: 100;">
<br><br><input type=button onClick=disp_img() value='Show Details'>
<div id='msg'></div>
