CSS Page Load Order
by vanpraag on Jul 24, 2006 at 2:11:15 pm
Alright, so I have a fairly decent grasp of the many feats CSS can accomplish when it comes to design. However, one thing I am still unclear on is exactly how precise of control can be accomplished through page order and elemnt list order when it comes to page loading. It seems to me that regardless of list order on a single page or even seperate CSS pages linked in a certain order on the index, elements still load based on size. Any help in the matter would be greatly appreciated.

I am not entirely sure if the Wikipedia link is to my point, but thank you. To break things down as basic as possible. I want to delegate what order in which every element will load onto a viewers screen. I want image A, B, and C to load, then this text, then IMAGE D, so on and so forth. Is this possible? More precisely through CSS coding?
ahh - i see. well the wikipedia article is sort of related to what you're asking then...you can't control the order in which things are loaded on your page with css, and you really can't control it in general. typically a dom will load your page from top to bottom, but it won't wait for a given item to load before proceeding to load another...
but outside of that, there's no good way to control how things are loaded on your page outside of in a flash movie... :-/
