IIRC correctly, jQuery's document ready event is fired as soon as the HTML
itself is loaded and the DOM is built, unlike <html>'s onload which waits
also for all external stuff (CSS, JS, images, etc) to be available. This is
a good thing to speed up things that don't depend on external content but,
in your case, it seems you are trying to use the src resource of an <img>
element before it's available. I'm no jQuery expert, so I can't tell for
sure; but you may check it out by running your code from <html>'s onload
event instead of the document ready event.
