Snippet:)
document.onmouseup = runMouseEvents;
 
function runMouseEvents()
{
    mousehandler();
    anotherEvent();
}
 
function mousehandler()
{
    // code
}
 
function anotherEvent()
{
    // other event code
}

You can also define an unlimited number of events like this:
<input id="btn" type="button" value="I have two events!" />
<script>
// define event functions
function event_one() { alert('one!'); }
function event_two() { alert('two!'); }
// get the button element that will trigger these events
var btn = document.getElementById('btn');
// attach the two events for internet explorer
if (btn.attachEvent) { 
  btn.attachEvent('onclick',event_one); 
  btn.attachEvent('onclick',event_two); 
}
// attach the two events for all other browsers
if (btn.addEventListener) { 
  btn.addEventListener('click',event_one,false); 
  btn.addEventListener('click',event_two,false); 
}
</script>
