How can I preload images in a browser?

HOW does one cause the preloading of images? For the same page, or for the following one?

If the images are part of the page HTML, then they will preload automatically – that’s built into the browser. If the images are in the page, but only load in response to a JavaScript event (rollovers, for example) then they have to be preloaded with JavaScript, or else there will be a lag when the effect is initially triggered. Freeway writes this code automatically if you build your rollovers using the Rollover Action. If you want to see what that code looks like, then make a simple sample page with a couple of rollover images on it (set up with the Action) and preview it into a text editor or view source in a browser.

I found this answer somewhere else. It reminded me that I already new this from my past way back in my past.

You can also preload an image without JavaScript by creating a 1 pixel square version of the file and hiding it somewhere on the page, like so:

All I can do to add to this is to give the URL where I got this info. It is still easier, to me, than other methods talked about.
