Another method is to stick a script tag in your partial that calls the

Thanks for the help Bob,

Putting the code in the partial works fine in Firefox, but alas IE lets

via DOM until they are fully rendered. IE crashes with an “Operation
Aborted” error. This happens in both IE 6 and the new IE 7 Beta.

The :complete worked perfectly though. I should have known. It’s getting
late though and my brain isn’t working like it should be.

Thanks again,
