You need to find out what the left of the image is and make this the left of 
the layer. I happen to write a similar script at the moment, so here is some 

<A HREF='etc' onMouseOver='functionCall(this)'>

You need to send the object (the link) to the function.

Netscape 4: actually very simple

function functionCall(obj)
if (document.layers)
  theLeft = obj.x;
else if (document.getElementById)
  theLeft = obj.offsetLeft;

  rest of code, div.style.left = theLeft

This assumes that you don't use any layers except for the ones that become 
visible. I haven't found out how to do it in IE4 yet.

Top: obj.y and obj.offsetTop
