I am learning how to design my own web site. I am just about done. However my homepage takes a bit of time loading due to preloading of images etc. How do I have an initial page with the message "preloading images...please wait" or some such message initially appear while it is loading for a specific amount of time which fades out after the specified time or until the homepage is loaded? Or any other suggested methods of holding the reader's attention while graphics load?
