Attached file mouseenter event test
User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; rv:10.0.2) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/10.0.2
Build ID: 20120215223356

Steps to reproduce:

In the attached test page, moved the mouse from the white area directly into the red <div>, which is nested inside a green <div> inside a blue <div>.


Actual results:

The mouseenter events were fired on the <div>s in this order: red, green, blue.


Expected results:

The mouseenter events should be fired on the <div>s in this order: blue, green, red.

This is not specified in the spec (http://www.w3.org/TR/DOM-Level-3-Events/#event-type-mouseenter), but this is how Internet Explorer behaves and it makes much more sense.

I think D3E should define the order.
