What a stupid answer!! on October 26, 2001 at 18:02:40:

Not worth reading

Too short

Not technical enough

Who wrote this answer? "Preloading" an image refers to loading the image prior to page load, which must be done in the head, and hence through javascript. The only reason to preload images is to use them in image swaps. If you put this code in your body, you're not preloading at all - you're loading. The image might even finish loading well after the rest of the page content, and you'll get some pretty stupid looking image swaps while the user is mousing over your unloaded content. I think you missed the whole point of preloading.
