public interface EventListener
EventListener interface is the primary method for handling events. Users implement the
EventListener interface and register their listener on an
EventTarget using the
AddEventListener method. The users should also remove their
EventListener from its
EventTarget after they have completed using the listener.
Node is copied using the
cloneNode method the
EventListeners attached to the source
Node are not attached to the copied
Node. If the user wishes the same
EventListeners to be added to the newly created copy the user must add them manually.
See also the Document Object Model (DOM) Level 2 Events Specification.
void handleEvent(Event evt)
This method is called whenever an event occurs of the type for which the
EventListener interface was registered.

preventDefaultmethods which are used in determining the event's flow and default action.
