Have your index.html be the spalsh screen and put a metta redirect in it.

<META HTTP-EQUIV="Refresh" Content="10; URL=http://main.html">

why don't you try the free A-soft Splash screen ActiveX control?
It will only work under IE.

dagon's answer will work for most browsers.  ndnet's answer for only one.  Hmmm, which would I choose?  You can also do something with JavaScript if you want a pop-up window.

Quick Start: DOCKER

Sometimes you just need a Quick Start on a topic in order to begin using it.. this is just what you need to know to get up and running with Docker!

Even better, make your splash screen your first page then automatically transfer to your main page after a predefined time.
