Standards information

Remarks

The IDOMEvent::target property returns the element that originally received the event. However, the IDOMEvent::currentTarget property returns the element that the event handlers are being processed for during the capturing and bubbling phases.

The IDOMEvent::target property is similar to IHTMLEventObj::srcElement in Windows Internet Explorer 8 and earlier versions.
