Degrader JavaScript library is Behaviour++


While I was explaining Behaviour to Mark Kraemer, he brought up and interesting issue related to attaching code to multiple DOM elements. This is an issue that is addressed by yet another JavaScript library. It is called Degrader, (.js source code) and it holds true to the intent of Behaviour (keep script out of markup). However, it is more flexible. Instead of having to explicitly declare code to run with a specific element, you can use regular expressions to match multiple elements (by searching ID values for DOM elements). This looks promising, but I need to play with it before I call it a Behaviour killa.
