I'm working with some rather large diagrams that are graphics in my help
pages. They are wider than the usual window area that opens when you open

I have found a script that will highlight any particular area of the graphic
for me, using coordinates. For example, if I want to see a diagram of a
human body, I can click on the word "head" in the help, and the graphic will
open with the head surrounded by a red square.

What I'm looking for now is a script that will make the desired coordinates
to appear as near as possible to the middle of the window without requiring
the user to scroll to find the highlighted area. That is, if I were to click
"Right hand" I wouldn't want the window to open on the belly and make the
user scroll to find the highlighted right hand. (I'm not actually using body
parts, I'm using entity-relationship models, so the user wouldn't know which
way to scroll.)

Any ideas?
