I'm using attached code to change the image when mouse point over the image.

The problem is, when mouse is over the image, it downloads the image from server, and then change. I mean it takes a bit of time to change.

Is it possible both image will load when page the page gets loaded. and it will change image immediately when mouse over the image.
<img src="img-0.GIF" onmouseover="this.src='img-1.GIF';" onmouseout="this.src='img-0.GIF';">

Yes, you can preload the image with javascript, for instance:

img = new Image();
img.src = "img-1.GIF";
