what is the event source ??


It seems (reading CSS2, 2.2) that the 'target' property of the event
object is defined as the top most element that has received the
event. For example:

  <TABLE border=0 cellspacing=0 cellpadding=0
         onmousedown=doSomething() onmouseup=unDoSomething()>
	  <TD> content </TD>

In this case, by default TABLE, TR and TD have the same size, and TD
would always be the target, and I don't see how to know that the event
handler was triggered on TABLE (i.e. that TABLE is the source that
triggered the event).

Did I miss something ?
