Description Jesse Costello-Good 2006-01-17 20:58:33 PST
When loading a script file dynamically using the following common DOM technique, the onload() event 
handler is never called. 

var element = document.createElement("script");
element.src = "/path/to/my/file.js";
element.type = 'text/javascript';
element.language = 'javascript';
element.onload = function() { window.alert(this.src + " loaded"); };

I am evaluating Safari for a port of TIBCO(R) General Interface, a mature AJAX platform that is currently IE 
only. Fixing this bug would make the port more feasible.

I see that this bug is fixed in the most recent nightly build.
