    Load page from bottom to top? (IE6)

    Is it possible to have the browser load a page from bottom to top? When browsing pictures, the detail i want to see is usually at the bottom. Now I have to wait for the whole pic to load to see the bottom section. If it loads reversed, I can close it if it does not contain the details needed!

    TIA
    Regards,
    Rudi

    I doubt it. How would the browser know where the bottom is if it hasn't first worked out what comes above it? <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>

    Try turning the monitor over or standing on your head. <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>

    Here's <img src=/S/cheers.gif border=0 alt=cheers width=30 height=16> to the top, to hell with the bottom. If there were not top there would be no bottom. <img src=/S/cheers.gif border=0 alt=cheers width=30 height=16>

    Now running HP Pavilion a6528p, with Win7 64 Bit OS.

    If you turn off pictures under Tools>Internet Options..., Advanced tab, Multimedia, then you won't have to wait for them to load. <img src=/S/wink.gif border=0 alt=wink width=15 height=15>

    The problem with this approach is that once I turn the monitor...I want the top of the picture to load first...??? Any advice now!!

    You need to find a Mongolian programmer who writes in the Turkic language. "[i]Written mainly from right to left in horizontal lines, though some inscriptions are written vertically with the letters rotated by 90

    It may be harder to find the Mongolian Programmer than to find a utility to do the job!!

    Note from Mongolian Programmer specialist:

    "The traditional Mongolian script, used in China and scheduled to be reintroduced as the official written language of Mongolia early in the 21st century, is ultimately of Semitic derivation. It was borrowed from the Turkic Uighurs, who themselves borrowed it from the Sogdians, an Iranian people. Mongolian letters have different forms depending on their position (initial, medial, final) in a word. The script is written in columns vertically, from the top of the page down and from left to right. " (Encyclopaedia Britannica)

    Most of the 20th century Mongols used modified Cyrillic letters, so descendants of Genghis Khan couldn't help you (I met one guy who swear he is one of them - I believe him).

    So try to open Internet Options, click the Advanced tab and uncheck "Show pictures" checkbox under "Multimedia". This will speed up page download. Then you can press Ctrl-End to reach the end of the screen, read the comment, and then to right-click each picture placeholder and from pop-up menu choose "Show picture"...

    Many tx for the reply...but you mis-understand my Q!
    I want the page to load with all the pictures, but the pics must load from bottom upwards!

    Your suggestion is very valid though, and will benefit loungers that read thid thread!
