the page won't ever showup unless the webserver finishes processing the PHP
file, therefore the "Loading ..." will appear while the page is waiting for
its component to finish loading (images, javascripts, flash files, ....)

therefore what you're asking for has a javascript solution:

1)make a <div> with width and height about 1000 and absolute position w/
z-index=1000
2)add a body.onload event so that when the pages loads you hide that layer.
3)that layer can hold any text or tags as you want like: "Please wait...."

this division's code:
<div id='loadinglayer'
style='left:0;top:0;width:1000;height:1000;position:absolute;z-index:1000;ba
ckground:black'>Please wait....</div>

<body onload='hidelayer()'>
</body>

<script>
function hidelayer()
{
  if(document.all)
    document.all['loadinglayer'].style.visibility="hidden";
  else
    document.layers['loadinglayer'].visibility="hide";
}
</script>

hope that helps
