Hey all,
Is there a simple script you could help me with to display a loading image in a <div> until the content or image is loaded?

Thanks!

By the way, a cute fix to do this is if you have an image in a div like so:

<div><img src="image.jpg"></div>

You can set the div's background-image (with CSS) to a loading bar. That way, when the image isn't fully loaded, the loading bar will show up, but once the image is loaded it will cover the bar. :)
