A simple script for exact placment of a textbox (infobox)
over the current textbox, asking the user for the width
of the infobox and in which column to place it.
I normally use it for a table-like box above the regular text.

USAGE
Select a textframe, start the script and have phun
Default name for the infobox is 'infobox' + name_of_selected_frame

TODO
* ask for height
* ask for name
* ask for content?
