Preloading

On the www-html mailing list, Tantek Çelik mentions that he proposed a pseudo-element of :partial for CSS that allowed the author to specify how an element should appear as it was loaded by a user agent. The user with a slow internet connection could then be delivered something to avoid the blank-page-confusion that they are sometimes faced with under those circumstances. The initial proposal was four years ago, but with a recent revival of interest, Tantek may bring it up at the next meeting of the CSS Working Group. Personally, I think it is an excellent idea and I hope it makes it into CSS Level 3.
