Chapter 9. Document Object Reference > Event Handler Properties

9.3. Event Handler Properties

Objects that can receive events have event handlers listed in their main entries. Because this chapter focuses on the scriptable aspects of HTML elements, the event handlers are listed in their lowercase property form—the form used to assign function references to event handlers in script statements. See "Binding Event Handlers to Elements" in Chapter 6, for details on this event handler format.

The selection of event handler properties listed for each object is based on a couple of factors. First, just as most HTML 4.0 elements have "intrinsic events" associated with them, those same events are listed in this chapter with the objects that reflect the HTML element. As such, it may seem odd that an element that has almost no visual presence on a page has keyboard and mouse events. Those events are listed just the same, even though the likelihood of your scripting them is next to nil.
