UI Events

This repository is for the UI Events specification (formerly known as DOM 3 Events).


The goal of the UI/DOM Events sub-group, part of the Web Applications Working Group, is to complete the UI Events specification according to market needs, to drive its adoption and implementation, to provide a comprehensive test suite (for implementability at least, and hopefully for interoperability, too), and to move it along the Recommendation Track to W3C Recommendation status.


For discussion of matters related to DOM Events, the group uses the mailing list (archive).
