Basically JavaScript executes one statement after the other, so if you have

   ... onClick: 'alert("1");alert("2")'

you get one message box after the other, not all at once ;-)

Now, it might depend what you actually do within your statements. In
the context of [Scriptaculous] you probably mean something like ...

   ... onClick: (html update id: 'id1'; callback: [ ... ]) , (html
update id: 'id2'; callback: [ ... ])

The updaters for id1 and id2 immediately return as the updater itself
is run asynchronously (the first A in AJAX). If you want you can
change that with some setting in SUAjax. The same is true for
