    Is there a way in which I can control which web page elements load up first. I want banners to load up last.

    No there is not, but with FireBird you can stop banners from loading at all.

    You could make a transistion page that would pre-load the banners.

    This would force banners to load up first. I'd rather they load up last so viewers won't be turned away early. Thanks for the suggestion anyway.:)

    Okay, I missed that "last" part. You could pre-load your images then, and the text should be fast. I'm guessing you could load the banners as hidden/invisible, then make them visible on a timer, but I wouldn't be the one to ask about the code itself. If all else fails, just host the banners on a really slow server :)

    Unfortunately the banner exchanges host the banners. :( To do it myself, I'd need to load banners on a separate page which leads to problems above. Does anyone know how to code loading delay???
