: Well, that was just a little too obvious

before you rush off to build a cf_body custom tag, let me warn against this
route in favor of the script block method i proposed for performance reasons
related to custom tags.  you're much better off avoiding the performance hit
of the custom tag by using a different method of calling a function with the
onload event handler.  i'd suggest that you save the custom tag writing for
instances where other solutions are more difficult to use.

good luck,
