    bind() vs fixed event names?

    My usual way of attaching event handlers is:

    Code:
    $('#element').click(function(){...});
    I'm seeing this method, however, and I was just wondering what the significant differences were and if I should be using one or t'other...

    Code:
    $('#element').bind('click', function(){...});

    The bind allows you to add a single callback to multiple events e.g.
    Code:
    $('#element').bind('click mouseover', function(){
    });
    It also allows you to pass data to the event handler.

    View http://docs.jquery.com/Events/bind for more information.
