following our joint meeting with the SVG working group a couple of weeks  
ago, we have agreed that we will publish a draft of the ProgressEvent as  
soon as possible - hopefully that will be available this week and formally  
published in the next week or so.

The MouseMultiWheelEvent is for the case where there are multiple wheels  
in play. We agreed that the MouseWheel event as being specified would be  
appropriate for the JSR and SVG working groups.

The current draft is at  
<http://dev.w3.org/cvsweb/~checkout~/2006/webapi/DOM-Level-3-Events/html/DOM3-Events.html?rev=1.8&content-type=text/html;%20charset=iso-8859-1#events-Events-eventgroupings-mousewheelevents>  
based on the proposal at  
http://dev.w3.org/cvsweb/~checkout~/2006/webapi/DOM-Level-3-Events/proposals/mousewheel.txt?rev=1.4&content-type=text/plain

Best regards

for the Web API working Group

Charles McCathieNevile, chair
