This kind of functionality is provided by DHTML "behaviours", which are
something Microsoft has put into Internet Explorer 5, and have submitted to
the W3C for consideration. It uses a new CSS attribute 'behavior' (ugh,
should be a "u" in there!) to specify a behaviour for a given CSS class.
That behaviour can add new properties to those elements, as well as provide
standard event handlers (eg, onclick()) for every element of the class.
