Delayed for loop

I’ve tried searching the forums for a way to load my xml menu with a small delay between each menu item. I thought I had it with this code:

function load(){
    for (var i = 0; i<8; i++) {
        navHolder_mc.createEmptyMovieClip( "navButton"+i, i );
        var navButton:MovieClip = navHolder_mc["navButton"+i];
        image_mcl.loadClip( astrImages*, navButton );
loadinterval =setInterval(load,200);

However, the only thing it does is making me wait 200 ms for the whole menu to load at once.

Can anyone help me out here? I’m stuck.:kir:
