(in general) a + starts you from the top or left.  a - starts you from
the bottom or right.  Horizontal comes first, so
+0+0     upper left
+0-0     lower left
-0+0     upper right
-0-0     lower right

mote: most apps follow these rules and this is the position part (as
opposed to the size/shape part) of the geometry.  i.e. look for geometry
in the docs.
