Figure 13.9 Window was resized manually by the user. The onResize event handler
In many previous examples, we've seen uses of the onClick event handler to initiate an
action when a user clicks the mouse in a button or on a link. There are a number of other
events that can be fired due some action of the mouse. When the user moves the mouse
pointer over a link, image, or other object, the onMouseOver event handler is triggered, and
when he or she moves the mouse pointer away from an object, the onMouseOut event is trig-
gered. Table 13.4 lists events that are triggered when mouse movement is detected.
