<!DOCTYPE html>
      <p onclick = "coordsFunc(event)">
         Click here to get the x (horizontal) and y (vertical)
         coordinates of the mouse pointer.  
         function coordsFunc(event) {
            var x_coord = event.pageX;
            var y_coord = event.pageY;
            var xycoords = "X coords= " + x_coord + ", Y coords= " + y_coord;
