I should add that using onchange presents a problem since the event
doesn't fire until the textarea looses focus. Whatever solutions that
exist need to work like onpaste without the focus issues of onchange.

There is no equivalent to onpaste event for a textarea, as far as I
understand your post.
"Fires on the target object when the user pastes data, transferring the
data from the system clipboard to the document."

Maybe if you could provide an url showing how your script works for
MSIE, I could have a look at it and maybe propose an alternative.

The site said to use Internet Explorer 5 or better... so I switched to
Mozilla 1.7.6 :)

Thanks for the offer DU but I do have alternatives. However, I need to
seriously consider this particular option if a viable one exists.

You could try to use
<textarea oninput="..."
with Mozilla, of course it doesn't fire only for text being pasted but
also for other text manipulation like cutting text but at I think it is
the only event handler in Mozilla and HTML documents being fired when
text is pasted into a text control.

frm.ctlName.addEventListener("DOMCharacterDataModi fied",
function(e){myEventHandler(e);}, false);

This method works, but it has several minor bugs which I logged at:
https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=285272

Also, note that if you do something like select the 5 in 54321
and then press 6 (changing the text to 64321) you will fire twice:
The first time the value will be 4321,
and the second firing will have 64321
