figured out event setting on Opera, it's just like IE 5 for the mac. Instead of


node.setAttribute("eventName", "some code");

one should use

eval("node."+eventName+"=function(){"+somecode+"};");

to set event handlers on dynamically created nodes in Opera 7. For simple assignment (when you know the name of the event and it's not passed into a function or anything), this works:

node.eventName=function(){somecode();}

Opera 7

I've been playing a bit with the new Opera 7 beta, and with less than an hour's worth of work, we have inline constructors and the rest of the netWindows infrastructure working correctly on it. There are some issues with node creation and event setting, but they seem workable.

I'm very impressed. Kudos to the guys at opera.
