You have the window.onscroll event (defined by both Netscape and IE) that
fires, but nothing specified by the W3C.

It seems to me that the W3C DOM working group has quit developing
(expanding) upon the HTML side of the DOM, and more the shame.  Even though
the data world is going XML on the web, the display is staying HTML.  I wish
they would focus some more time and effort to the interaction of the DOM
with HTML, there is much more that needs done so developers can write once,
run anywhere.
