[thelist] CF: Tag to insert into body tag

It seems that what you are asking is if there is a way to change



<body onload="myfunction">

based on criteria that are calculated farther down the page.

There is no real simple way to do that.  You may end up trying the

<cfhtmlhead text="
  <script language=""javascript"" for=""body.onload"">
  ... code goes here...


<cfhtmlhead text="
  <script language=""javascript"">
    window.attachEvent('onload', myfunction);

There maybe HTML/JS version limitations to these techniques, but it may get
you to where you need to go.

Is anyone aware of a tag that will allow me to insert attributes into
the <body> tag of a document in a similar way to <cfhtmlhead>? I use
templates for my HTML, some documents use validation javascript
other's not, and I prefer not to leave an OnLoad() in the body if
it's not going to be used.
