The only reason it does not work in IE is that IE expects a function  
object, not a string, because of it's quirk of treating DOM  
attributes and JS properties as equivalent. If you try  
removeAttribute or setting the attribute to nil you'll see. So the  
failure is due to a totally independent IE bug, not because IE  
doesn't update handlers for DOM changes, as far as I can tell.

I discussed this with Jim on IRC before.
