Description jay 2010-06-13 09:25:33 PDT

focusout: Occurs when an element loses focus, such as when a 'text' becomes unselected.

it is not clear to me how this is intended to be used, however please find a testcase attached

in Safari and Opera, clicking on a green rectangle starts its own flashing cursor

however only in Opera does one animation stop when the other starts.

please accept my apologies for the code, an even simpler testcase would be appreciated.
I had the devil's own trouble getting this one to function at all.

in August 2000 Accessibility Features of SVG  states:
"Good authoring practice will normally use the focusin, focusout and activate events rather than the device specific events for gaining and losing the focus on an element or activating the element. "

Opera implementation allows either focus or focusin

moving to DOM as whilst the effect is SVG the cause is DOM

Changed component to SVG, so it shows up in my all-svg-bugs search.
