We're currently cleaning this mess up, but in the meantime we can
explain why "HTMLEvent" is there. Rather than simply a piece of
text it should be a hyperlink to:
http://www.w3.org/TR/DOM-Level-3-Events/events.html#Events- 
eventgroupings-htmlevents
which uses the term (for error, load, unload, submit, scroll, etc).
