Yes,

The simplest method is to embed something like the following in your html:
<img src=xxxx.pl width=1 height=1>

Thus, whenever the user looks at the page the image will be shown but the image will be only one pixel in size.  You can make the srcript just send the user a single transparent pixel.  Make as gif file that is just a single transparent pixel and have your script send this.

ALternatively, if you have no background:
<body background=xxx.pl>
the rest is the same as above.

This is the method that the various stats tools use, the only difference is that they usually want to show a real image and I assume that you do not.
