Sweet, that works. Kind of. Sadly, if you are in the middle of a dom:loaded callback... document.loaded is still false. It's not true until after all the dom:loaded callbacks have been called.
And it's if you are IN a dom:loaded callback, and you then try to add another dom:loaded listener -- that's what really makes Prototype/ Firefox go all screwy. I kinda of agree with the later commenter that Prototype itself ought to take care of adding a dom:loaded callback at odd times -- if you add it after dom:loaded, it should just execute immediately. If you add it in the middle of a dom:loaded callback, it should just be added onto the end of the queue. But, sadly, that's not what happens. If you call it in the middle of a dom:loaded callback, things go screwy. If you call it after dom:loaded, your callback will never get executed. Hmm.
