The issue with scott andrew's addEvent is that it doesn't retain the
"this", that is why there was a code competition to replace it.


As this one still has issues in Safari, I tend to use another method
to find the element that was activated called getTarget and one to
cancel any other functionality called cancelClick (the equivalent of
return false).

Thanks Christian as usual. I'll give it a go. This is actually for a kiosk running on IE so I don't have to worry about Safari :)
