Netscape 4 and Events

Events in Netscape 4 don't match completely the procedures for Internet Explorer or Netscape 6. All three browsers support event handlers as attributes of elements or properties of their corresponding JavaScript objects. Beyond that, it's another ball game.

Caution

Netscape 4.x does not appear to implement event bubbling. An event starts from the window object and ends at the element with the event handler.

Compare this to Internet Explorer: Netscape 4 only lets events go “down” from the window. Internet Explorer only lets events go “up” to the window…

At least Netscape 6 is making an effort to use the standard, but this is just another area where you must be very careful in coding for multiple browsers.
