32. XML Events Module


This section is normative for purposes of defining the integration of XML Events into XHTML 2. The semantics of XML Events itself is normatively defined in [XMLEVENTS].

This module includes the listener element as defined in [XMLEVENTS]. As permitted by XML Events 2, this element is incorporated into the XHTML namespace.

32.1. Events

This module defines the Events Attribute Collection via the global attributes from [XMLEVENTS]. The normative definition of those attributes and their semantics is included in that specification. Their names and datatypes are listed below:

Attributes Notes

observer (IDREFS)  
eventTarget (IDREFS)  
handler (URI)  
phase ("bubble" | "capture" | "default"* | "target")  
propagate ("stop" | "continue"*)  
defaultAction (cancel|perform*)

Asked the submitter to review this issue... We believe this is an XForms problem, not specifically something that XML Events should deal with.

The group notes that you can access anything that is in the event object. We will add some text to make this clear and tie it to the DOM 3 specification.
