Q726 How can I disable a graphic button on page before the page is fully loaded and enable the button once the entire page has loaded?

Use the typical image swapping techniques - but the default image to be displayed should be blank, and the image "swap" should be triggered by the onLoad event handler:

<SCRIPT LANGUAGE="JavaScript"><!--
if (document.images) {
    nonblank = new Image();
    nonblank.src  = 'nonblank.gif';

function swap() {
    if (document.images)
        document.images['myImage'].src = nonblank.src;

<BODY onLoad="swap()">

<IMG NAME="myImage" SRC="blank.gif" WIDTH="100" HEIGHT="100">
