    I am using this code for a rollover image. It works fine but can someone tell me what to add to make the images pre-load?

    <img title="this" onmouseover="this.src='http://scruss.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2010/01/that.png';" onmouseout="this.src='http://scruss.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2010/01/this.png';" src="http://scruss.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2010/01/this.png" alt="" width="192" height="116" />

    Thanks in advance

    This is old style inline coding. It works but I wouldn't recommend it. try reading up on jQuery.

    Is it really necessary to preload?

    If think i've read that if you pre-load then the buttons change quicker as they have already lloaded instead of waiting for them to load when you hover over them.

    Why wouldnt you reccomend this code?
