The admin_print_scripts* action hooks get called in the header, so if
you run your script at that point no element of id "publish" yet
exists.  You need to let the entire document load first.  Fortunately,
WordPress makes this easy for you by defining the "addLoadEvent"
function on every admin page; just pass a function to it that you wish
to execute when the DOM is ready.
