My problem is exactly the same issue in this article:
"I have a requirement where I get some HTML snippet through Ajax request and then update a div area. So far so good. The HTML snippet needed to have some JavaScript"
Knowing that the JavaScript in the HTML snippet is trusted, It should be executed after inserting it in the div area.
As in the article, I use appendChild to insert the HTML into the div, in the case of Firefox, and user defer attribute to the scripts tags come in the HTML snippet in the case of IE.

It works will but I discovered that the script is not executed always in the IE.

Is there a solution (OTHER than using eval) to ensure that the script attribute will always executed on IE.
