[webkit-dev] Mouse event position related to actual element content

After some experimenting I have figured out that computing mouse position
relative to the actual content (also ignoring all borders, margins and
padding) can be done as following:
int innerX = xPos - tx - x();
int innerY = yPos - ty - y();
It has worked for me for a long time already. Please let me know if I am
wrong and not taking some special cases into account.
