run 2 javascript functions on the same page

Hi all,
I have 2 javascripts which are working fine.  On script shows/hides content depending on a checkbox tick.  The other script does an auto complete suggestion select box for a textarea.  When I put both scripts on the same page, they both work without errors except my body onload stops working.  The body onload hides the show/hide content by default.  If I tick the check box to show the already shown content, then untick it, it hides the content just fine.
When I comment out the function for the autocomplete script, the content becomes hidden by default, but of course the suggestion select box script stops working.
Here is what I have:
/* This is the auto complete script */
<script type="text/javascript">
<!--
if (location.href.indexOf('<?=$url;?>') != -1) {
window.onload = function ()
// if I comment out the above line, the show/hide script works onload
{
AutoComplete_Create('ship', ['FedEx', 'UPS', 'USPS', 'DHL', 'Freight', 'ups', 'usps'].sort(), 6);
}
}
if (top.location.href != location.href) {
top.location.href = location.href;
}
//-->
</script>
 
/* This is the show/hide script */
<script type="text/javascript">
<!--
function showMe (it, box) {
var vis = (box.checked) ? "block" : "none";
document.getElementById(it).style.display = vis;
}
//-->
</script>
...
 
/* This is the body onload part */
<body onLoad="showMe('div1', this)">

because both are trying to take over the onload

Perhaps something like:



/* This is the auto complete script */
<script type="text/javascript">
<!--
  if (location.href.indexOf('<?=$url;?>') != -1) {
    var oldOnload = window.onload;
    window.onload = function ()
// if I comment out the above line, the show/hide script works onload
    {
      if ( oldOnload ) {
        oldOnload();
      }
      AutoComplete_Create('ship', ['FedEx', 'UPS', 'USPS', 'DHL', 'Freight', 'ups', 'usps'].sort(), 6);
    }
  }
  if (top.location.href != location.href) {
    top.location.href = location.href;
  }
//-->
</script>
 
/* This is the show/hide script */
<script type="text/javascript">
<!--
  function showMe (it, box) {
    var vis = (box.checked) ? "block" : "none";
    document.getElementById(it).style.display = vis;
  }
  var onload1 = window.onload;
  window.onload = function() {
    if ( onload1 ) {
      onload1();
    }
    showMe('div1', this);
  }
//-->
</script>
...
 
/* This is the body onload part */
<body>
