Loading status animations

I’d like to insert a little “loading status” animation on certain pages of my site (similar to Macromedia’s site), due to the fact some of my dynamic pages have a ton of data, and load time can be an issue. Where on the page would I place the tags, and how would I coordinate it with javascript OnLoad tags (or active script?)


Macromedias site is Flash with an XML backend (I believe).

If you want a Javascript preloader you can find some at www.dynamicdrive.com
