The point being, if the add isnt downloaded first, and there are some other images of decent size.. there is a higher chance of somone not viewing the add than if the add itself was downloaded as the first image. Since you cant download an image before you have all the .html that it goes to, an interesting possibility would be to add a 'load-weight' or something similar to the img src= attribute. So you could specify in what order images were downloaded(assuming images are being displayed as downloaded) without breaking the format of the .html page in somones browser... -mike
