    Hi - My site's primarily html, with a little bit of flash. My boss would like for the site, ie, text and graphics, to load all at once. If it takes a few seconds thats ok. I'd rather not put a flash preloader up front since the site just has a little flash in it and may eventually not have any. Is there a script that says something like "do not load/show any text on homepage until all graphics have loaded? Thank you for any suggestions!

    OK. But if people are staring a blank screen for 3 seconds they might leave again because they think it's not working.
    I would recommend a spinning loading icon or something

    Or optimize the images so they don't take so long to load. 90% of those types of problems can be solved by optimizing images and writing clean code.

    put a great big honking <table> around the entire design...

    Seriously... that is the drawback to using tables ( in most cases ) as if your design is in a table... the entire contents of the table has to load into memory before the browser will display it...

    using CSS ( preferred method )... loads into memory and as the elements are loaded... the browser shows them... so by all appearances, the site will load fast....

    if you wanna slow things down... try wrapping the design in a table...

    if you can break it up.... "small table" on top to hold your header... larger table to load the main contents , and a small table to hold the footer contents.... at least once the header table is loaded it will give the visitor something to look at... while the other tables are loading...
