    Minimizing page downloads

    lifespantoo
      I know this is a basic question, but I'm ignorant! I am creating a website using primarily Fireworks, Flash and Frontpage. I have a banner and buttons on the side that will appear on each page. Do browsers automatically display the banner and buttons from cache when viewers click on different pages, or is there some way to make that happen? Since Fireworks slices up those pieces rather than displaying original files, does that affect the way browsers download them?

          All fetched graphics (and other externally linked files) are reused from the
          cache during that session.

            OK, great. But are the buttons and banner on subsequent pages with different content sliced the same way so that they are the same cached files? Does my question make sense? Thanks for your help Murray.

              I don't understand what you're talking about. Browser checks file URL to
              determine whether it was cached or not. If URL for the file is the same as
              for the file cached before, then cached file may be used. Otherwise - it's
              not. That's all.

                That's about the size of it....
