Why doesn't CSS have a way to stop the immediate load of a section of a
page? Isn't that presentational? The section wouldn't be showed until
load is allowed, and included content, like images, wouldn't be
downloaded.



For instance:

<html>
<head>
<style type="text/css">
<!--


#delayedload { load: no;}


-->
</style>
</head>
<body
onload="setTimeout(\"document.getElementById('delayedload').style.load='
yes'\",1000)">
<img src="someURI" id="delayedload">
</body>
</html>

 It would be the same as doing something like:
Blah=new Image("SomeURI");
After a second.
