      =========
      Howdy!
      Is it possible to have a message display while an image is displaying.
      I want people with dial-up to know something is actually going to happen
      if they wait.

      Here is what I am using now:
      <img src="photo018.jpg" ALT="LOADING...Delks Bluff Bridge"
      TITLE="LOADING...Delks Bluff Bridge">

      I get a "tool tip" display in IE but no alt or title text showing.

      Thanks,
      -Mike

              never mind now I remember why I don't use it anymore:
              LOWSRC="URL" (Netscape only)
              Specifies a low-resolution image file. A netscape browser will
              first load the smaller, low-resolution file specified by LOWSRC and will
              then load the larger SRC-specified image file.

              the new one with higher z number fills ...

                Howdy!
                Is it possible to have a message display while an image is displaying.
                I want people with dial-up to know something is actually going to happen if they wait.

                  it makes sense, sorta, because 9 times out of 10, background pictures

                        faster browsing, I would think you need to add some sort off script to your
                        page to do that ,the size of the image means the browser has to think less
                        all though I would have thought the ALT info would appear as soon as the
                        page loads the actual image comes last .
