Ok. So that doesn't work. It doesn't load until the rest of the page does, which doesn't really make the "page loading.." message all that effective, and it doesn't go away after the rest of the information is already there. Although I assume from your reply that this is not an advanced problem, can you tell me what I'm doing wrong?
