bug 317 - onload doesn't work everywhere

Issue: #317
Affects: Firefox, IE6, IE7, Opera, Safari

According to the JavaScript documentation, the onload event can be handled for the body, iframe, img, frameset & object tags. However not all browsers obey this the same.

Supports iframe onload:
Firefox - Yes
IE6, IE7 - Yes
Opera - Yes

Safari - No

Supports object onload:
Firefox - No
IE6, IE7 - No
Opera - No
Safari - Yes

So, take this into consideration if you are planning to use object versus an iframe in your next project.
