Hi Paul,

The easiest way is

element.onevent = fncEventHandler approach;

it is cross-browser (and old fashioned) and always work.

Otherwise you need a cross browser wrapper.
Almost all of the JavaScript libraries out there have some kind of
addEventListener function to make this easier.

the below is copied and modified from s at rdalya:

            else if(_.defined(obj.attachEvent))
                alert("ERROR: unknown event handler: " + eventType);

btw I've open-sourced s at rdalya.
I will load the recent stable version to sourceforge servers and
continue my development there. Currently the page is rather empty.


Everyone is welcome to participate.
