Float Element Positions and IE

I am trying to get the position of an element, and have it working in all the latest browsers other than IE. I want to get the current position on the page. I am using float Left or Right for placing the elements and this has allowed me to skip using tables to layout the page. The draw back I am having, is simply IE gives me the position me the offsetTop as always 0 and I am assuming that left is relative to the current container. How can I get the current position of an element within all browsers, no matter how I place an element?

  1. document.getElementXY= function(hoo){    
  2.     var T= 0, L= 0;
  3.     while(hoo){
  4.         L+= hoo.offsetLeft;
  5.         T+= hoo.offsetTop;
  6.         hoo= hoo.offsetParent;
  7.     }
  8.     return[L,T];
  9. }
