It appears that it can work with at leas some objects on IE. I have

function window.onload(){
. . . //function body

- for example, as a way of defining an onload handler.

But as ECMA Script defines methods for achieving the same effect (that
work on IE) it does not seem like a good idea to be using a syntax that
is not part of the specification even when authoring for exclusively IE.
It would just be another bad habit that would need to be un-learnt prior
to successfully writing cross-browser code.
