SharePoint Events not Firing

I am trying to get Event Handlers to run on a WSS 3.0 server I have for testing. For any event handler I write, it does not seem that the event is "firing".  Greatly simplified the effort and went back to the tutorials that start with writting a receiver for the ItemDeleting Action on an Annoucement list.
Here is what I know:
-  The code compiles without error, and is registered successfully in the GAC.
-  Feature.xml and Elements.xml are correct, and contain a GUID and the Public key back to the .dll.  
- Feature installs and activates without problem with stsadm.exe.
- The Feature Admin Tool (codeplex) correctly shows the Feature is on the farm
- Event Handler Explorer (codeplex) correct shows the handler as being attached to my annoucement list.
- no errors in the event log

Found some references to events having to be turned on in Central Admin; however none of the "step-by-step" procedures got me to a setting.  Best I could find was the setting for backwards compatibilty with the 2.0 events...

It really appears that the event is just not firing.  Any thoughts/suggestions/clues?

Turned on the more detailed event logs within Central Admin. This revealed I had a typo in Elements.xml that was the route of my problem.

Reading your analysis it appears you've highlighted all the obvious problems.

Have you tried implementing it in different templates?  I'd start with a collaboration portal that has all the features turned on.  Some 'Features' in Sharepoint only work on specific templates.

How are you deploying your customization?  Are you using a Sharepoint Deployment Solution?
