'Ghost' DOM element

    Hello,

    Is there any way to make an element (a div to be more precise) *not*
    receive any events. By this I mean all events it should receive to be
    targeted at elements visually underneath it.

    More specifically i have transparent container divs which have other
    elements in them. These containers can overlap, so it is possible for
    an element in a bottom container to be overlapped by a
    (transparent)part of the upper \container. I want the element in the
    overlapped div to receive all events (mouseover, mousemove, mousedown
    etc).
    Clipping is not an option as long as I can only clip rectangular
    regions.

    I have found some threads in this newsgroup dealing with the issue
    but the solutions were always too specific. I actually need to 'relay'
    all the events, not only to detect the moment when the events *should*
    go to another element. The element being overlapped can have multiple
    listeners.

    Thank you in advance.
