Hi Justin,

the Attrs = [pos="1,1"] syntax is the right one.

The reason you see no effect is that the layout program will override
your explicit positioning.  You can bypass the layout step by using
the [layout:none] option, but be aware that you then have to supply
*all* the layout information yourself!

Cheers,
Joachim
