I have a script that will preload an html page without using an additional page or redirecting script. With the help of Kuckus I was able to get this script to hide flash elements until the html images were completely loaded in IE browsers. This does not work properly in NS 6 however. In NS6 you will see the loading text while the html loads but the flash navigation remains hidden when the html images are done. I am not sure if this is a syntax problem or incorrect formatting of the DOM structure. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Here's the script originated by Gilbert Davis and modified to hide the flash by Kuckus.

<html>
<head>
<SCRIPT LANGUAGE="JavaScript">

<!-- Begin
function loadImages() {
if (document.getElementById) { // DOM3 = IE5, NS6
document.getElementById("hidepage").style.visibility="hidden";
document.getElementById("hideflash").style.visibility="visible";
}
else {
if(document.layers){ //netscape 4
document.hidepage.visibility="hidden";
document.hideflash.visibility="visible";
}
else { // IE 4
document.all.hidepage.style.visibility = "hidden";
document.all.hideflash.style.visibility = "visible";
}
}
}

</script>

</head>

<body onload="loadImages()">

<div id="hidepage" style="position:absolute; top:0px; left:0px; height:100%; width:100%;">

<table width="100%" height="100%" border="0"><tr><td align="center" valign="center"><font face="verdana" color="#ffffff" ><B>Loading...</b></font></td></tr></table></div>


html content here


<div id="hideflash" style="visibility:hidden;">

flash navigation here

</div>

</body>
</html>

Offhand it looks fine.

It might not help, but can we see the actual page to view the behavior ourselves?
