Event.srcElement

Deprecated

This feature is no longer recommended. Though some browsers might still support it, it may have already been removed from the relevant web standards, may be in the process of being dropped, or may only be kept for compatibility purposes. Avoid using it, and update existing code if possible; see the compatibility table at the bottom of this page to guide your decision. Be aware that this feature may cease to work at any time.

Initially implemented in Internet Explorer, Event.srcElement is a now-standard alias (defined in the DOM Standard but flagged as "historical") for the Event.target property. It's supported in all major browser engines, but only for compatibility reasons. Use Event.target instead.
