Due to a bug in Netscape 6 that prevents preloaded images to work as
expected in certain situations (they don't remain in the cache not even
after they have been rendered once in the page), and looking for alternate
solutions, I came across a question on stantards that I couldn't find an
answer for.

Given an <img style="display: none">, is the navigator required to download
the image and cache it or not? Moreover, is this a standard or should each
navigator implement its behaviour the way it sees fit? After some
experimentation, it seems IE 5.5 does download and cache the images though
Netscape still doesn't work.

Thank you for your opinions,
