hi,
I am developing a site which contains 2 menus which contain hover images,and change buttons, background images etc and so i decided to pre-load all images. What i did is given below:

<img src="images/green-over/about_green_hover.png" alt="" title="" class="preload_hover" />
<img src="images/green-over/branches_green_hover.png" alt="" title="" class="preload_hover" />
<img src="images/green-over/contact_green_hover.png" alt="" title="" class="preload_hover" />
<img src="images/green-over/home_green_hover.png" alt="" title="" class="preload_hover" />
<img src="images/green-over/gold_green_hover.png" alt="" title="" class="preload_hover" />
<img src="images/green-over/diamond_green_hover.png" alt="" title="" class="preload_hover" />
<img src="images/green-over/pearls_green_hover.png" alt="" title="" class="preload_hover" />
<img src="images/green-over/watches_green_hover.png" alt="" title="" class="preload_hover" />
<img src="images/green-over/stones_green_hover.png" alt="" title="" class="preload_hover" />

and in css i just gave display as none. This works fine in firefox 3,opera 9, chrome,safari 4 and flock...But when i checked it in IE 6 it just did not work ..There was a delay while the hover-image was downloaded..how do i solve this without using scripts..

send me the full html and css code for thread. here its not showing even in dreamweaver also

This will be alot more easier to solve, if you can provide the script that generates your preload function.
