There can be only one onload. However, one can enter multiple statements separated by semicolons:
<body onload="a(); b(c); d(e, f, g);">

Note that each statement must be unique. If you want multiple clocks on your page, that's a more complex question, in which you would need to change all the variable and function names to make them unique.

Well, sure, go ahead and call the same function twice. But it won't do anything except in really rare circumstances.
