onmousewheel is currently only supported by ie6, and the example site given
by ms:
would not work too well if it were say a map, the implementation seems
askew, ie return false appears not to disable the standard process, as
pointed out by Jon Hanna.

zoom and mousewheel have a natural feel, dragging a slider can be very
inconvenient for some users, and repeat clicking can be tiresome.
did you visit our beta? http://www.peepo.com/2k1/mousewheel/
I hope to have it with a drop-down list, as well as the 'spreadsheet'.
I'd like to be able to tab to the button and then wheel, however this seems
to be a problem see: srcelement/target onfocus on gl

Do we mean by device independence that any device can navigate anyhow, or
more realistically that we provide a navigable site for any device.
wheels have a certain provenance, somewhat different to walking....
Please try to think how this is going to work, the theory sounds fine
setting a practical example requires plenty of determination.

Any errors are mine, and apologies as I am new to most of this.....
