I don't think you would call a function in javascript a handler.  My feeling
is that there isn't a universally accepted term that would apply across all
the language types.  Code chunk or snippet is as generic as you would get
without getting strange looks.

Handler to me has connotations out of the xTalk languages because at the
time of Hypercard they didn't want to scare off potentially non programming
hypercarders.  At that time we were making the transition to event based
programming where events were trapped and "handled".
