Quite disagree: * If I remove an element and add it elsewhere, I don't expect its events to have been de-registered. The code that moves the element shouldn't have to be aware of the (possibly unrelated) code that added the event listeners in order to ask it to add them again. * Removing from the document is not the same as allowing to be GC'd * Some elements may never be added to the document. Eg, an XML document which you download, manipulate then build some HTML representation of. Perhaps you want to monitor for mutations and keep the HTML in sync?  Jim  Not actually possible in IE or Chrome/Safari but would be nice if it were. In Chrome DOM mutation events only fire if the element is in the document: http://jimhigson.blogspot.com/2009/09/chrome-and-dom-mutation-events.html -- Jim my wiki ajaxification thing: http://wikizzle.org my blog: http://jimhigson.blogspot.com/ --~--~---------~--~----~------------~-------~--~----~ You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups "Prototype: Core" group.
