I see you've not done that, so a heads up there. Perhaps we should put a prominent link in the element page somewhere, to points readers to the DOM interface page for info on events, etc.

So if HTMLElement already has the event, you don't list it again on HTMLParagraphElement because HTMLParagraphElement subclasses HTMLElement. 

Hrm, really good question. It would make sense to use an intelligent automated process to associate parent and child Interfaces, and their properties and methods in this way. But until we have one of those, I'd just list all of them where appropriate.
