Man-Handling Events #1

Worth reading

Too short

Not technical enough

I have the following comments:
1) I would be careful about the "children" terminology when describing the table structure. I believe that only direct desendants are children of a given element. All others are grandchildren or more removed descendants. This could be important for readers who are trying to come to grips with the new W3C DOM structure.
2) The click examples in the article should mention in the body text that they apply only to IE 4+. They don't function in Netscape 4.x.
3) I would like to see more examples of actual javascript coding in the article with regard to the two different means of handling events -- bubbling vs capturing. Readers of this article who aren't that familiar with these would welcome the examples and how they are applied and programmed. The article does a good job of summarizing the properties and methods of the event object in the two browsers.
