Problem with XML loading in images

Hello all,

I have a “website template” that I am working on and I am having some trouble with a few images that I am trying to load using XML. The images do load into where they’re supposed to go but my problem is that it takes forever for them to load. I checked to see if the images weren’t fully loaded (I even set a text field so I could see both the total bytes as well as the total loaded bytes and it showed that it loaded all of them), but they just aren’t appearing until a while after. I have a preloader for the main document and I even tried including the xml files to the preloader so that it would wait load the content first which it does but for some reason the images aren’t there until sometime after… any ideas? I’m not necessarily looking for code suggestions necessarily but more of theories on how to fix it.
