I am using Firefox as a browser. As a rule I try to stay as browser independent as possible.

I am experimenting with the captureEvents method as a way to override the default beahvior for the onUnLoad event:

      <script language="JavaScript1.2">
         var changed = false

         // override the document.unLoad event handler
         window.captureEvents(Event.UNLOAD);

         // Register the event handlers here:
         window.onUnLoad = handleUnload;

         // function to handle the unLoad
         function handleUnLoad
         {
            alert("The page has unloaded.");
         }

         // Function to set the changed flag to T
         function dataChanged()
         {
            changed = true
         }
      </script>

I am having some trouble getting it to work properly in IE and Firefox. Does anyone have any experience with this?
