Emulating progressive image loading for IE using Javascript

P: n/a

Internet Explorer doesn't load JPGs progressively. I need to show a
large graphic (100KB) on dial-up lines, so I searched for a way to
emulate progressive loading of images.

Couldn't find anything, so I've written my own, with bands of low-res
image being loaded and then overwritten with high-res. Have I been
re-inventing the wheel?

> However, instead of using either scripts or the low-res elements, I'd
rather suggest creating the images as thumbnailed links, so that a
user can load each of the full resolution images individually, if he
or she needs to.

You could also just slice up the image to several files. The disadvantage of
that method is that you don't have control over the sequence of loading.
