$.position fails to properly position when the target element is within an iframe. For instance, attempting to position an element adjacent to the #anchor div below will not work.



<div id=anchor>hello there</anchor>

Cross iframe support isn't possible. We could support your specific use case, but it would be a lot of code and would be very inefficient (we'd have to check every iframe to see if it contains the element we're positioning against, since you can't walk up from the iframe's document).

If it's not possible to walk up from iframe's document in all supported browsers couldn't you then provide an "inframe" option?

I would like to be able to use position() to add overlays to the content iframe of tinyMCE.
