Can you get away from using onload altogether, by putting
scripts into $HTMLFooterFmt ?  These would then be executed
at the end of loading the <body> section, without having to
disturb window.onload at all.

Another way to reconcile the conflict might be to make sure
that each onload function "chains" to the one that was previously
stored in window.onload.  (I haven't tried this.)  Thus:

    // get the previous value of window.onload, if any
    var ABCchain = window.onload;

    // store our onload function
    window.onload = ABCload;

    function ABCload() {
      // call any onload function that we replaced
      if (ABCchain) ABCOnload();

      // rest of ABC's loading here
