    Contolling status bar message

    Hi Friends,
    I am trying to control what gets displayed on the status bar of my site.onMouseOver and onMouseOut event handlers displays the right message i.e:

    Code:
    onMouseOver="window.status='http://www.mysite.com/index.html'; return true"  
    onMouseOut="window.status='';return true"
    But when I add onMouseDown,it does not works.i.e.

    Code:
    onMouseDown="window.status='http://www.mysite.com/index.html'; return true"
    Can someone please tell me how to make this work???
    And how to control the status bar message when the site initially loads up.
    Any help would be appreciated.
    Thanks

    OK Friends,I got this through google and it worked:
    Code:
    onmouseover="window.setTimeout('removestatus()',5);" onmousedown="window.setTimeout('removestatus()',5);"
    <script>
    function removestatus() {
    window.status = '';
    }
    </script>
    But now,I want to know if there is someway to hide the initial status bar message when the site loads up.It shows up something like:
    Opening up.....

    Can I hide/customoze that message somehow??
