    Page loading

    Hello, so I have a little javascript fade in and out with two pictures but whenever i load the page, since the bottom image loads first you can see it which i dont want to happen. Is there any way I can make it so that my images dont show up till they load completely or something.

    <html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
    <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8" />

    <link rel="shortcut icon" href="favicon.ico" />
    <link href="css/style.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />

    <script type="text/javascript">

    function FadeOutIn(id,f,t,ms,hold){
    setTimeout(function() {fade(document.getElementById(id),f,t,new Date(),ms,hold)}, 5000);

    function fade(o,f,t,srt,mS,hold){
    var ms=new Date().getTime()-srt,now=(t-f)/mS*ms+f;
    if (isFinite(now)){
    if (ms<mS){
    setTimeout(function(){ fade(o,f,t,srt,mS,hold); },10);
    else {
    if (t==0){
    setTimeout(function(){ fade(document.getElementById(o.id),t,f,new Date(),mS); },hold);


    <body onload="FadeOutIn('frontImage',100,0,1000,2000)">
    <div class="holder">
    <div class="header">
    <a href="index.php"><img src="images/title.png" /></a>
    <div class="content">
    <div class="mainImage">
    <img id="backImage" src="images/img2.png" />
    <img id="frontImage" src="images/img1.png" />
    <a href="about.php"><div class="mainButton"></div></a>
    <a href="secretLogin.php"><div class="myButton"></div></a>

    </div> <!-- close content -->
    </div> <!-- close holder -->

    Why don't you just use CSS to set the images display property to "none" or "hidden?"

    Then you can give them both ID's and set the window.onload event as a basis to make them visible. This event shouldn't trigger until both pages are completely downloaded (or an error has occurred).
