body onLoad crashing Dragable Content script

I would like to use the Dragable Content found here: ... le-content

The Dragable Content will not work if I have any body onLoad in my page.

I have 2 onLoads which work fine for what they're supposed to do. I read in another thread about creating a function for calling several onloads with one function, and tried that, but then my scripts don't work *and* the Dragable Content doesn't work either. If I have any body onLoad (ie: <body onLoad="init_scripts();">) it will crash the Dragable Content Script. The boxes and images appear, but they are static (can't be dragged).

The moment I take out the onLoad, the drag and save to cookie works fine. How do I get the Dragable Content script to work with a body onLoad?

Not, not live yet, still working with this locally using WAMP...however, I *think* I have it figured out.

Rather than have <body onLoad "startres(); inittabs();">, I put this in my footer...

<script type="text/javascript">
<script type="text/javascript">

Seems to be working so far...I haven't fully tested this on all the pages but I think that might be my solution. If I run into additional problems, I'll let you know, but thanks for getting back to me so quickly. Truly appreciate it.

Unless someone else has this working with a body onLoad, I don't think it works with one....

Oh, yes, typo on my part when I posted, I did not copy and paste the code from my html document and thanks for the tip about the stuff in the footer.

One thing I noticed about the drag script is that it doesn't "play nice" with a dom rollover that I'm using on the images.

The image rollover affect works initially but once the images are moved, the rollover quits working.
