    If an element with the contenteditable attribute set to true is the child of another element with the content editable attribute set to true it appears that any events fired are on the parent rather than the child. How can this behaviour be prevented?


    I don’t know if it will make a difference but your HTML is a little off.

    `<a href="#">
      <img src="logo.png" />

    It was just a quick example, I tried it in a variety of cases and it seems to always be a problem.
    I can resolve it by wrapping the child inside an element with contenteditable set to false but I’d rather not do that.
