I have a two-phase button using javascript, has anybody noticed in IE 6 when you click something like this, the progress bar (green bar in status bar) goes to completion and looks as if the page is loaded but nothing happens for a split second, then the new page does load. To the user it looks like the page stopped loaded though...

My two ..

Depending on the type of "two-phase button", consider using CSS instead of GIFs ..

If it's merely a simple push-down effect CSS is much better.

a {
padding: 2px 10px 3px 10px;
font-size: 0.8em;
border: outset 2px #5aa0b8;
background: #004466;
color: #cccccc;
text-decoration: none;
height: 19px;
vertical-align: bottom;
a:active, a:focus, a:hover {
background: #004466;
border: inset 2px #5aa0b8;
vertical-align: middle;
color: #5aa0b8;
