I'd appreciate if somebody could help me understand event propagation in multiple-level containerized applications.

Let us say that Microsoft Word is running inside a browser that is running inside an applet which, of course, is running in a browser... The specific hierarchy is not important.

How does a mouse-click, in the word-document, get delivered to the document? Does it travel down the component-hierarchy? How does a click get delivered to an applet.. etc?

I'd appreciate any references on this subject.
