Hi folks.

I am about to embark on creating a slideshow using javascript and css.

I was wondering what do people consider the best way to preload the
images to be used within the show.

I saw a technique where the images were stored in 1 px by 1px divs
with overflow set to hidden.

I am sure there are other methods as well.  I know in years gone by I
used to see the images stored in an array (javascript).

Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance,
Terry
