The docs say .live works for all events now, but I can't seem to make them work for load event. #6143seems to say the same thing, but was closed. Here is my test case:

The way that live and delegate work is by using event bubbling. That is, the events that travel up the dom tree, alerting their parents of the activity.

The load event, unfortunately, is not an event that bubbles. (see for a list of events and if they bubble)

Good work on distilling the problem down - it looks like you'll do great helping us find and eliminate bugs as we move forward :D

Oh, and as an example of my ramblings, notice how the load event on the parent div doesn't fire:

To reduce future confusion, we'll update the documentation to specify events that bubble. So good that you brought it to our attention.
