    I found this website, but I don't know if this method is dated/not compliant with today's web standards.

    If you have a copy of Dreamweaver, then you can use the code it provides for an Image Pre-Loader.

    You can download a 30-day Trial of Dreamweaver to get you started.

    I doubt Dreamweaver's preloader will satisfy standards/markup purists.

    Try www.alistapart.com - look for anything on menus, rollovers, "hover", and preloading... whatever they have is guaranteed to satisfy the strictest standards followers. For example, I think they go over a method involving *one* background image which sort of *scrolls* ([minicode]background-position: -50px[/minicode]) on hover, giving the appearance of multiple images.

    The link you mentioned should work and is fine with "standards" if you change a few things like using double quotes, not single quotes for attributes... but... some people believe it is bad because it's ruining your precious markup (X)HTML with purely visual code. My opinion is it's only important if it makes a difference to (1) the disabled or impaired or (2) those with fringe/old/wireless browsers... so this might be even better (so if CSS doesn't load or work right, extra images will not be visible):
    HTML Code:
    <span class='preload'>
        <img src="images/about2.gif" alt="" width="0" height="0" />
        <img src="images/home2.gif" alt="" width="0"
    height="0"   />
        <img src="images/clients2.gif" alt="" width="0"
     height="0" /></span>
