>Thanks for the tip, Alex. This would certainly work in some cases but, unless IĒm missing something, I believe itĒs only when one rectangle is a DOM child/descendant of the other, right? My rectangles are DOM siblings, and sometimes not even siblings but nieces and nephews. As I understand it, the bubbling event only moves along the DOM via parent/child relationships on itĒs way to itĒs target. My other rectangle isnĒt in the path of event travel so it never would never receive the event.

Yes, good point. Capture/bubbling does require the ancestry relationships to work.

That's certainly an interesting use-case you have. Maybe other  people will have
some useful suggestions.

Cheers,
Alex
