i just wanna make sure of this before i do it.

if i have a graphic that appears on every page of my site ex. the banner, and use CSS to insert it in (using it as a background for a div with no repeat) then would it only need to load once thereby cutting the load time of all the pages except the homepage?

thanks!

EDIT: i just noticed something else, look at this page in FF and then IE. the text under to reach us via e-mail is ok in FF, then in IE, the link is forced onto another line. can anyone help me out on this one? link to styesheet
