that's quite good.  a very non-techy description of a fairly techy
programming concept.

Fixed a typo from last send,


Action Item 2.1 write 


Definition of Event Handler


A section of code that responds to an action taken by the user (or user
agent). On web pages, events are usually user actions such as moving the
mouse, typing, etc. An event handler determines the response to that
action. A technology specific event handler only responds to an action
by one kind of input device. An abstract event handler is one which can
be activated by a variety of input devices.
