Re: Test 10.8.f needs work

Attached is revised 10.8.f.  Note that it is correct that the original test
was using ev:defaultAction="cancel" rather than ev:propagate="stop" since
it's the default action of resetting the model that is to be canceled vs.
simple propagation of the event.  I've replace the xf:reset with
xf:dispatch and moved the handlers and attributes around...

There's a bug related to some of these XML events in Ubiquity so I can't
test this there (and unfortunately, the FF extension for 3.5 seems to have
broken the xf:dispatch element so that's a no-go too...) but if anybody
cares to try this elsewhere or sees problems let me know.

Thanks, Charlie

Test 10.8.f purports to test the dispatch element but does not contain a
dispatch element!

The reset action technically dispatches an xforms-reset, but dispatch
should be used for cleanliness.
However, many of the same complaints exist as I posted for test 10.8.e also
exist here.
The event attributes are attached to the wrong element, and stopPropagation
needs to be used.
