Please help with slow image load message

Hi,

I have an image that loads slowly since it is a result of a complex
database calculation. While it is loading, I'd like to show a message
"Please wait" in the same place the image will appear. Can I just add
code to the <img src> tag? What should it be?

Thanks,

Peter

You could try and use an 'ALT' arguement in the <IMG> tag... For example,

<img src=/images/whatever.jpg alt="this is the text I want displayed while
image is loading or if images are disabled">

Hope that helps you,
