Does anyone know how to show a "please wait..." message until the page load was finished?

I have an image button on a page called 'Take Test'. But loading of test page takes some time. So I want to show "Please wait ...page loading" text above the image button.

Thanks in advance.

Hey thanks for quick reply... but I dont want image preload code.

I have a page which has "Take test" image button. On click it starts to load a test i,e question pages. This page is very large so it takes time to download. So after button click I want to show 'Please wait....' text above the image button itself untill the question page load was finished.

<html>

<head>
<title>Load Test</title>
<Script>
function kk() {
document.getElementById("s").style.visibility = "visible"
}
</Script>
</head>

<body topmargin="0" leftmargin="0" onLoad="kk()">
Loading...
<div id="s" style="visibility:hidden">
<p><img border="0" name="ss" src="img1.jpg" width="800" height="600"></p>
</div>

</body>

so b/w the DIV tag is your Page Content.
And Customize your Loading.. message to anything you want.

Here is my proposal:

<html>
<head>
<title>Loading...</title>
<Script>
function showContent() {
  document.getElementById("wait").style.display = "none"
  document.getElementById("content").style.display = "block"
  window.document.title = "Content loaded.";
}
</Script>
</head>
<body  onLoad="setTimeout('showContent()',5000)">
<div id=wait><center>
<h1>Loading...</h1>
<img src="http://us.i1.yimg.com/us.yimg.com/i/mcookie/wait.gif">
</center></div>
<div id="content" style="display:none;">
<center>
<H1>Some content</h1>
</center>
</div>
</body>
</html>

It hides the wait div after loading.

Change for your production this demo from this:
<body  onLoad="setTimeout('showContent()',5000)">

To this:
<body  onLoad="showContent()">

The five seconds are only for the demo wait time.

Good luck,
