Hello Bjoern,

I've been given an action to rewrite the example in this section.
I intend to put an example which shows something like an EPG (Program Guide) where after the 5 minutes the navigation order is changed using scripting methods.

Beyond that, you must know that the WG has resolved to add stopPropagation() and preventDefault() methods to the uDOM since SVGT supports XML Events which <listener> element already supports the following attributes : defaultAction="cancel" and propagate="stop".

So if we want to have a better consistency and since we do not want to define a subset of XML Events, we have decided to add these 2 methods() to uDOM, which are certainly not very hard to implement (it's easier to cancel or drop an event than to process it right ?).

Regards,

Vincent

Perhaps you could state in more detail how the working group handled my issue? Has the note been changed or have facilities been added to allow cancelling events? In case of the latter, which facilities, how are they defined, are there appropriate examples, etc.pp. i.e., what changes have been made in response to my request?
