I am using web services on a web site that can also run in a local machine. Is there any standard way in form of an elegant jQuery script to detect whether the internet connection is available?

You can try by loading image from internet:

var connection=false;
var image=new Image();
image.src="http://someimageonthenet.com/jpg.jpg";
image.onload=function () {  connection=true; }

What will happen when the url of the image is change or removed?
Furthermore this is not jQuery call. There should be kind of utility function not related to resource on the internet that can be changed ....
