I have a database catalog page dipslay situation where we have a large jpeg image (~100K) that is by default showing as the main element of the page.
Then we have a PDF (for more clarity or enlargement) (some are 500K in size)  that can be displayed (using a JS script) upon click of an ENLARGE/DETAIL button.
What (html or JS) code can i put in to have the PDF be preloaded, but ONLY AFTER the main image completes?  A strategy of a simple time delay is fine if there's no JS mechanism to wait-for-page-display-completion.
By having the PDF "in the wings"  then it would display quickly once called upon.

thanks
