Default Example 3-4

It doesn't look like there's much interest in this book but I'll post my issues anyway.

Chapter 3, example 4 contains the following line of code:

$('div#finderFiles div.finderNode:first').trigger('click');

which only works on my system (i.e, highlights the first finderNode and its child) if said line of code follows the call to applyEventHandler(). In the book, $('div#finderFiles div.finderNode:first').trigger('click') precedes applyEventHandler().

Also, I would expect the named event ('click.finder') needs to be used in order to call the 'click.finder' event handler; i.e:

$('div#finderFiles div.finderNode:first').trigger('click.finder');

However, both 'click.finder' and 'click' call the 'click.finder' event handler.

Perhaps someone can lift the fog for me.
