Positioning Gauges

I would like to move some gauges from one aircraft to another. I know how to get the gauge I want to show on the new aircraft by changing statements in the Panel cfg file, however, I do not understand how coordinates are set up. Example: gauge17=Beech_Baron!Attitude Indicator, 190, 51. Some gauges have 4 numbers, instead of 2 as in my example.
So, how can I set coordinates so my gauges fit where I want them to fit? What does the standard grid look like from top to bottom and side to side?
I think that once I know the grid pattern, I can position the gauges correctly.

Thanks.

I have made up some number to simulate what you were talking about.

gauge17=Beech_Baron!Attitude Indicator, 190, 51, 134,150

gauge** Indicator, X position, Y position, X size, Y size

the 0,0 is in the upper left corner

Thanks, IKW, that helps. Just one more question on horizonal and vertical positioning...what numbers would be the other 3 corners? I could experiment, but it would be nice to know. I might expect it would be based on the screen size (I have a 22inch LCD monitor).

Thanks, again, for your help.
