I suspect that PHP does all of it's work and, only when complete, will it
send the generated html to the client.

No matter what you try and do there's no way you can output the progress of
your script to the browser while it is still being parsed.

I could be wrong, but this is my understanding of it.

Is your script really taking that long to be parsed that you need a loading
progress bar or is the html (including graphics etc) just very big?

Anyway,

Hope this helps
Derek
