How do I get the position of a page element

I have an onClick handler for a context menu, so users can right-click any page element. Now I'd like to get the position of the element. It seems I can get the size (clientWidth and clientHeight) but how do I get the position on the page?

Edit: Figured it out:

var element = (IHTMLElement)htmlElement;
var x = 0;
var y = 0;

while(element.parentElement != null)
	x += element.offsetLeft;
	y += element.offsetTop;
	element = element.parentElement;
