Mouse Click Co-ordinates

I am using a server-side component for resizing/cropping images. Cropping
is possible if I know the co-ordinates. I want to be able to offer users
the ability to specify their own co-ordinates. It seems to me that the
easiest way to do this is to try to partially emulate an image editing app's
Marquee tool, where a user clicks on an image to define the top left point
and drags and releases at the bottom right point. My questions are:

1. What's the best way to display the image to get these measurements? (It's
own div? Iframe? As an ImageMap? Other way?)
2. How do I capture the two pairs of coordinates? (Having got them, I'm
comfortable passing them server-side as QueryString values)

I expect users will have IE 5.5 +, Firefox 1.5 +, Safari

Thanks all

Thanks David. It's nice - but your suggestion helped me revise my googling
more successfully. I found this one (among 2 or 3 others):

Is it possible to detect a mouse click from a .net service. I want a process running in the background that will detect when the user clicks the mouse button (anywhere on the screen) and executes an action accordingly. All the event handlers for the mouse that I see are for Windows Forms. Is there a way to do it without any controls on the screen? Thanks

An LCD monitor with keyboard and mouse capabilities on it, thinnest possible, to hang on rack-door can be a boon for expensive spaces of datawarehouses. Has anyone come across one? Maybe someone would go into manufacturing it. £800 Dell product I am told occupies equivalent of two server space in a rack.
