One of my projects is to load a huge table, which them uses jQuery to cleanup, sort, format etc.
Obviously that does not look all that great for the viewer, so I wanted to keep the page invisible until everything was loaded and formatted.

I used this CSS trick:

<body class="initial-hide">

And CSS style:

.initial-hide {
   display: none;

This will keep the entire content hidden until we call the following javascript (at the bottom of your HTML file) - this will automatically execute when the document is done loading:

$(document).ready() {
