A quick patch to iUI

I've mentioned Joe Hewitt's iUI web framework before, and it does a pretty good job of imitating the iPhone native look and feel for web applications. However I was fiddling around with the framework and really wanted to be able to load an HTML fragment inline instead of appending it, which is the current behaviour of the "_replace" target, so I created a new "_insert" target to do just that...

The great thing about open source is that I can take some software that almost does what I want, scratch my itch, and make it do exactly what I want. If you're interested in scratching the same itch, you can download the patch files [1, 2] I've generated against the current release of iUI.
