That is a better solution:
Default visibility is "visible".
At the begining of the onload routine set visibility to "hidden"
perform your preloading and then set visibility to "visible" again

If you're going to follow through with this, be sure to set the
visibility property to hidden /in javascript/, rather than in your CSS.
Otherwise, users with javascript disabled won't see anything (since the
onLoad handler won't be called to make them visible).
