Before handlers

Folks,
Where are you finding info on this in the dictionary?  I looked in the
6.5.1 dictionary under the before, behavior, and mouseUp entries and none
of them mention anything about this type of structure. Not doubting what's
being said, would just like to see it in the dictionary.

I came across the front script issue in a pretty specialised situation.  I
wanted to add a line to one of the IDE popup menus and thought I would be
able to do it with an after mouseDown in a front script.  I guess I could
set a behavior on the IDE menu button so all is not lost.
