+0, Seems the full ticket proposal got truncated and the fiddle and links got cut off - I've amended the description accordingly, and taken a look at your plugin. At the moment, it seems to have a number of shortcomings - the lack of support for delegation, for one, so it seems there's more research necessary into the problem. I like the idea of providing a cross-browser solution to this, however - have you heard of much adoption of the plugin thus far?
