2.1.3 [DOM Level 2 - Events] Section 1.2.3, Event bubbling

V0006:

The specification states:

 EventListeners registered as capturers will not be triggered during this phase.

Quirks Mode, IE7 Mode, and IE8 Mode (All Versions)

The capture phase of the event flow is not supported. A noncapture phase of the event flow model is supported instead.

V0007:

The specification states:

 Any event handler may choose to prevent further event propagation by calling the 
 stopPropagation method of the Event interface.

Quirks Mode, IE7 Mode, and IE8 Mode (All Versions)

The stopPropagation method is not supported. Similar functionality is provided by the cancelBubble property.

V0008:

The specification states:

 Only one call to stopPropagation is required to prevent further bubbling.

Quirks Mode, IE7 Mode, and IE8 Mode (All Versions)

The following variations apply:

  • The stopPropagation method is not supported. Similar functionality is provided by the cancelBubble property.

  • The cancelBubble property can be set multiple times before the event handler terminates. In this case, the final value of cancelBubble determines its effective value.
