very basic sensor cleaning question

Just to make sure I'm doing this correctly, if dirt appears in the upper left corner of an image, the dirt is located in which corner of the sensor (while looking through the lens mount at the front of the sensor)?

Lower right.

If you have the K20D with dust alert, it will show you a picture of where all the dust is, as viewed from looking into the lens mount.
