the load event is way too late, you can't have forms exhibiting
different behaviour before onload and after onload, it's a horrible
user experience.

Equally you need to be able to deal with repitition elements that are
created through some script mechanism after your onload event might
have fired, the way to do this is of course through the stylesheet -
either with HTC's or expression() .

So you're expecting the users to see the templates until the load event fires?
