innerHTML and <script>

max
Hi
I want to load an external file into my page via XMLhttpRequest and
innerHTML.
The external file contains javascript code which is not executed during
or after insertion. All the HTML markup is displayed just fine....
basicly even this code doesnt work:

<div id='tmp'>original Content</div>

<script>
document.getElementById("tmp").innerHTML="<b>new</b>
Content<script>alert('not shown! why?');<\/script>";
</script>

looking at the page, "new Content" is shown with "new" bold as
expected, but there wont be the javascript alert!

can anyone help me?

thanks a lot

Is a thread from a few days ago with the same problem, the explanation
of why it doesn't "work", and the solution to it.
