    sly,

    Here's a script you might want to take a look at:

    http://www.dhtmlcentral.com/script/script.asp?id=17

    You would put the script into the html/htm page(s) to be loaded into the iframe. Click on "View Sript" to the left to see a demo.

    The script is configurable so you can customize the look (amoung other things) to compliment your needs .

    I might be able to throw something together later that displays an image while the page loads. Of course if you use an image, then the image must load first, which could defeat the purpose. You could over come this by pre loading the image you use in the head of the main page containing the iframe.

    I'll look into it a bit later on. In the meantime, there are some page effects here you might want to take a look at and give one a try: http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex3/document2.htm

    By increasing the duration, you might be able to achieve a suitable effect .
