on() is no substitute for live()

The jQuery docs suggest that live() is now deprecated and that we should now use on(). The fact is that on() does not function in the same was as live(). For example, I am using the jQuery Tablesorter plugin along with its pager extension. Using on() I cannot attach event handlers to table elements other than the first page viewed, whereas live() works perfectly on all pages.

Keep live() alive!!!!
