#99 - reuse your graphics images

Reusing your graphics images is a great way to speed up and brighten up your pages. All you have to do is make several references to the same graphics file from different places on your page, or from different pages at your site.

When a Web browser accesses your site, it will get the graphics file only once, and then it will keep it in a cache on the browser's computer. From then on, any other reference to the file will cause it to be retrieved very quickly from the cache, and it won't spend any time getting it over the Internet.

If you reuse your graphics images you don't have to compromise between fast pages and lots of graphics. You can have both!
