    I'm using IE6 and I've just created a simple page with this event:
    <body onunload="alert('sad')">

    could someone tell me if this works for you if you have IE 6? I've
    tested this in firefox and IE 7 and they both work fine with it. but on
    the IE6 copy I'm testing, the event is fired only when the page is
    refreshed. It's not fired when I close the page.

    any ideas or suggestions?
    thanks in advance

    On my IE6, this works fine:

    <body onunload="alert('sad')">

    If I add an MOTW to suppress the security warnng, it still works fine:

    <!-- saved from url=(0014)about:internet -->
    <body onunload="alert('sad')">

    Maybe you have disabled scripting in the browser somehow?
