Wow, does this work?
I've always used PHP to format output into Javascript, and included it 
in the page that way:

    <script type='text/javascript' src='foo.php?format=js&arg=bar'></script>

foo.php would return something like this when called with $format==js :

     document.writeln('Hello. Arg equals bar.');

It would be fun to see this work the way you imply, though, with PHP 
outputting HTML as a client-side include. Never tried it.
