I wonder why it was working in my case, then?  What I was doing  
_only_ worked when there was no object beneath the group, at least  
none affiliated with the group.  At the lowest card level there was  
the image... could that have passed a mouseUp to a group of which it  
was not part?

(Actually, this isn't entirely true...the fields themselves were part  
of two imbedded groups within the main card group that held the script.)

I guess I should file this, then.  My assumption was correct then,  
that the mouseDown over the field should have been acted on in the  
group script?
