[thelist] Looking up references for HTML

Greetings Everyone :

   I wanted to find out if there was a onclick event defined for the 
body element.  The first place I looked was w3.org, where I looked at 
http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd and didn't find 
onclick in the list of attributes for the body tag, so I thought that 
the onclick event isn't defined for body.

   Then I did some more searching and found two more websites[1] that 
say that there is an onlick event for the body tag.

   My question is, where do I look at the w3.org to find this 
information ... and what is the definitive answer? Did I search in the 
wrong places? Also -- if there is a javascript function defined for the 
onclick event  on the body tag, and another function defined for the 
onclick event for any other tag, do the two functions get called in 
order? Body->onclick, then Tag->onclick?

   Thanks for clearing this up.
