Default Dynamically change event handlers

Hi friends,

What I am trying to do is dynamically change an HTML-defined event handler with another JS function I have previously defined.

There is no problem when the new function has no arguments.
This code runs ok:

<script language="javascript">
function sayhello(){
  alert('hello !!');
}
window.onload=sayhello;
</script>

but can anyone help to do the same but passing an argument to the event handler? I've tried something like:

<script language="javascript">
function say(theMessage){
  alert(theMessage);
}
window.onload=say('hello !!');
</script>
it works fine in NS6 and Mozilla
but IE throws an error saying 'Not implemented'.

Thanks in advance

I'd use:
Code:
window.onload = function() {say("Hello!");};
OR
Code:
window.setAttribute("onload", function() {say("Hello!");});
