    loading images once only?

    i would like to know something. For my site, as their are kinda a few graphics for the navbar, if when the user loads the images one time, will it take less time he loads a page with the same graphics. If so, i think that i should create a special frame for the navbar, to prevent the user from loading the images for all the pages. Is that the solution or the images doesn't reload ??????\

    As longer as the user has caching turned on in their browser, the images will be cached after they are download once. There's no need to use a frame for this. As long as the images on your other pages are linking to the exact same image (in the exact same directory), the browser will grab them from the cache, and they will load faster as opposed to being downloaded every time.
