The onClick event is captured properly when embedded in the tag <img src="blank.jpg" onClick="alert('embedded click')"> or when using the addEventListener("click",functionName,false), but not with the simple document.getElementById(idOfImage).onclick = addHandler;
I can reproduce this bug on PowerMac G3 with 160 MB RAM running Mac OS 8.6. Mozilla Build 20000053108. The test page works correctly on Explorer 5 Mac but not in Navigator 4.7.3 nor in Mozilla.
Is this in any DOM spec (I can't find it), or is it just a bug for IE5-parity?
I would think this would fall under DOM Level 0 or the Netscape 3 event model, which was never implemented for most elements. This behavior is supported in M15 for virtually every element in a document except img. If this is something worth fixing which I think it is, I guess a better testcase is needed to see which elements support this and which do not.
Joki, I played around with this a bit and it looks like we really don't handle dynamically setting img.onclick, could you have a look?

Nisheeth, Some how I'm not able to see the alert. I guess it is still there. I tried it with Win-95 too, but it does not work. Reopening right now, if you think it is fixed please let me know like that.

Well the test case seems to not have an image with it. If you try this test case with a valid image it works just fine. I don't know that we are trying to support events over broken images.
