If you're doing this under script control (I prefer to keep all behavior out of the HTML markup):


This should give you enough of a clue to figure out how to declare it in HTML markup if that's what you're doing.

P.S. Of coures you'll need to deal with IE's window.event nonsense if the Event instance is important to you.

P.P.S. With the DOM Level 2 Event Model, you can assign as many listeners to a DOM element as you like, but IE doesn't support it. Always the life of the party, IE has its own proprietary API. So most people just use the DOM Level 0 Model (what's demonstrated in the previous posts).

Employing a library such as jQuery or Prototype hides all (or at least most) of the event handling browser differences from your code.
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
