"return false" doesn't work

I have 2 onclick handlers assigned to a document, each one returning false. But clicking on the document causes both handlers to be invoked disregarding "return false". Happens in all the browsers (FF 3, Opera 9, IE 7). Tried "click" and "mousedown" events, both have the same behavior.

<script src="jquery-1.2.3.js"></script>
  $(document).ready(function() {
    $(document).bind("click", "data1", function() { alert('click1'); return false; });
    $(document).bind("click", "data2", function() { alert('click2'); return false; });

Straight from the docs:

To stop both default action and event bubbling, your handler has to return false. Note that this will prevent handlers on parent elements from running but not other jQuery handlers on the same element.

Note: See TracTickets for help on using tickets.
