Delayed loading

    Hello,
    This is my 1st time here and I don’t know if this question falls properly under this topic area – so please forgive me if not…

    I’ve been designing a client site for which I’m using an image map on the main nav buttons, ie : Workshops, Feng Shui, etc., which replaces the images on roll over.

    My problem is: the main nav buttons are sometimes taking too long to start working… Is there something I can do to get them loading up 1st? I have a flash animation in the banner at the top that I figure must be causing the slow down.

    I very much appreciate any suggestions you may have!

    I’m a newbie, so I’m going about this best I can… but if you see any other dumb stuff I’m doing while you’re in there, please feel welcome to comment.

    Thanks,
    Susan

    I wouldn’t use javasript at all.
    CSS sprites are the way to go for nav rollovers.
