      I should have said:

      =========
      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

        ... For me this seemed the most practical. I added the dimensions but still not ALT or TITLE display while loading. I *know* I have seen this happen before.

          ALT or TITLE display while loading.

          Hi As far as I know the ALT shows up for people who turn there images off for faster browsing, I would think you need to add some sort off script to your page

            Hi
            As far as I know the ALT shows up for people who turn there images off for
            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 .
            THANKYOU DAVE M

                If the message is displayed in this case:
                <img src="image.gif" alt="message">
                depends on the browser your visitors use.


                To show a message to all visitors you
                might try something like this:

                --------------------------------------
                <html>
                <head>
                <style type="text/css"><!--
                #adiv {
                position:relative;
                width:200px;
                height:50px;}
                #adiv img {
                display:block;
                width:200px;
                height:50px;
                position:absolute;
                left:0;top:0;
                }
                //--></style>
                </head>
                <body>

                <div id="adiv">message<img src="image.gif"></div>

                </body>
                </html>

                --------------------------------------

                position:relative for the surrounding div is needed
                to position the image relative to the div and not
                to the window.
