Just wondering how many bytes this Gif is, perhaps you can
optimize the size for faster loading. I dont think too many
people would wait long for a page to load if its being help up by
the one graphic. I know 15 seconds is my wait limit, with cable
connection. You could also try something like this for loading.
image1 = new Image();
image1.src = "menu.gif";
image2 = new Image();
image2.src = "top.gif";
image3 = new Image();
image3.scr = "topleft.gif"
image4 = new Image();
image4.scr = "submenu.gif"
image5 = new Image();
image5.scr = "topmain.gif"
image6 = new Image();
image6.scr = "main1.gif"
image7 = new Image();
image7.scr = "right1.gif"
image8 = new Image();
image8.scr = "right2.gif"
image9 = new Image();
image9.scr = "right3.gif"
image10 = new Image();
image10.scr = "bottomleft.gif"
image11 = new Image();
image11.scr = "bottom.gif"
// End --> </script>
