This is a KNOWN issue, but i can't get a workaround...

This is a VERY simple issue i am having here.
What i am talking about is this:

<input ...{attributes here}... onevent="javascript function name here" />
it never works in internet explorer, but it does in other browsers. Example:
<input type="text" onclick="recalc()" />
doesn't work in IE.
HOWEVER, this DOES work in IE and in other browsers:
<input type="text" onclick="alert('test');" />

I can't make function calls work in IE!

Attached is an example...
And a link to an OLD microsoft knowledgebase issue:

Internet Explorer does not execute code when an event handler is set to directly reference a DOM function ... ...

Thanks in advance,
David D.
