Best way to detect missing images from javascript ?

Hi

I have a rails app where I need to display images coming from other sites.

Does anyone have an effective solution to detect missing images (ie broken links) in javascript ?

thanks

My memory is you can load it up doing something like:

i = new Image;
i.src = "http://…";

then check for the resulting size if it's width or height is zero, it isn't there... and I think there's a loaded() and maybe other functions as well...

search for javascript image methods on google and see what comes up...
