OpenLayers.Control.MousePosition

The MousePosition control displays geographic coordinates of the mouse pointer, as it is moved about the map.

You can use the prefix- or suffix-properties to provide more information about the displayed coordinates to the user:

var mousePositionCtrl = new OpenLayers.Control.MousePosition({
    prefix: '<a target="_blank" ' +
        'href="http://spatialreference.org/ref/epsg/4326/">' +
        'EPSG:4326</a> coordinates: '
    }
);
