Please forgive me if this is the wrong forum for this question.
I have 6 rollover buttons on my page. All are the same size.
I used Dreamweaver to do them. They are just simple and turn a different colour when the mouse is over them.
5 of them change instantly but the last one I added is slow. It seems to be loading the images from the web-server each time the mouse moves across the button.
Dreamweaver added some java to my page. I presume this is to handle the rollover buttons.
What could be wrong?

Usually DW uses JavsScript to handle rollover, but then again I haven't used DW since Ultradev. Usually the first time the change over occurs will be a tad bit slower, but then the browser caches the images. I think there is way that it will tell the browser to do that automatically with the click of a check box somewhere in DW. But don't quote me on that.
Another option you may wish to consider is using CSS and a:hover to highlight a text link on mouse over. It would be a faster load, but that just personal opinion speaking and I haven't seen the site. I recommend different things depending on the site and what "look" one is going for.
