well, i don't think that plain HTML offers any such feature. Specific
customizability needs to be done using Javascipt. You may want to explore
jQuery(a javascript library), wherein you can associate an event with any
one or more elements of your choice.

As of compatibility with all the browsers you need to use tags and features
that are supported by all these browsers. explore their documentation to
find out how much the browsers comply with the latest w3c standards. some of
the features are implemented in brosers like ie with different name, like
the way of changing the opacity of an image.

learning AJAX will also be of lot of help.
