A global event...in Firefox?

This is kind of nice:

function someHandler(a,x,y){
    alert(a.type);
}

<a href="#"
   onclick="someHandler(event,'x','y'); return false;">
   Do it</a>

Apparently, Firefox does support a global event object when passed as a parameter to an event handler, so the above code works in both Firefox and IE on Windows. You can't call window.event inside the function though, else Firefox will complain.

I've been doing the check for e for so long (see the previous post), like, waaaaay back in my DynAPI v1.0 days, that I hadn't noticed this technique was available.
