Tested with Safari 2.0.3 and works well - thank-you

Well, at least on Opera 9.10, this works, although somewhat unreliably in the given test case.

In need for a better test case I changed the test case found at to use addEventListener instead, and Opera spit the events out reliably in the same order:

1. mousedown
2. mouseup
3. click
4. mousedown
5. mouseup
6. click
7. dblclick

To confirm, add this code to the script tag that contains 'logIt':
function wrapIt(e_type){

(and make sure you delete the event attributes from and add a id='useIt' to the anchor)

(or create your own test case)
