HTML is not a programming language like that.  Javascript can be used to Add behavior to some HTML elements.  The closest you get to 'overriding' the behavior of an element is to create a javascript that returns 'false' so the action doesn't happen.  Other than that, you have to use what is already defined.

Even server-side languages like ASP and PHP don't change how HTML works, they just add other functions to the server processing of the page and forms.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

I was looking at behaviors to modify events such as onchange, onclick onfocus.  
I was also looking to modifiy whats placed on the form so that if an element is put on the form, two elements are placed (input box and button).  The combined objects would operate as one.

You need to be more specific.

For example .NET has several widgets that will do what you mention
jQuery and other frameworks also can do such things.

Most event handers can be overridden by javascript

Can you give an example, as to what do you want to modify?
You can always capture the generated event and trigger the different one programatically.

Or you want to trigger custom events?

Does anyone know if I use behaviors (*.htc) to define events such as onfocus, as compared to dynamically defining onfocus (element.onfocus=) is faster to build up a form?

I cannot imagine an externally loaded file applying event handlers is faster than inline/jQuery
