If I use an inline event, onsubmit="..." and return false to the event it will prevent W3C compliant and IE 8,7,6,etc. browsers from submitting the form.
But I can not use an inline event declaration for this project.
So I add the event listeners after page load:
Event Listeners: http://www.rodsdot.com/formEventListener.asp
That works for IE 8 and below but not Firefox.
If I change the addEventlistener to use an anonymous function it still works in IE 8 and below but not Firefox.
Listener w/Anon Func: http://www.rodsdot.com/formEventListenerAnonFunc.asp
What am I missing or is it documented somewhere that the submit event can not be canceled using W3C event handling?
