OK I am not sure if this is the correct forum to post this in but i am having a specific problem with a page on my website.

I know that the page does not validate - that's a whole other story - we are trying to get a complete redesign done but in the meantime we are workign with what we have.

anyway the page in question can be found at http://www.sunnyview.org/artShow/artcollection.cfm

once the page loads, if you rollover one of the items, its background turns blue and an overlib popup comes up with a couple images in it. this all works, but for some reason when you view the page in IE, as you move your mouse around on a single item (live over the image and the text beside it) you shoudl notice that the rollover and the overlib popup "flicker".

it doesn't really do it in firefox, just IE (imagine that). is there anything I can do?

i know that the main interface for he page is a bit bloated and hard to follow so i will post the key portions below that i am referencing:

some general styles found in the head section:

The OverLib Div (for the popup effect) found at the beginning of the body:


The list of artists (note i only included one of the artists for simplicity)


  • ', WIDTH, 300);" onMouseOut="this.style.backgroundColor='white'; this.style.borderTop='1px solid #FFFFFF'; this.style.borderBottom='1px solid #FFFFFF'; return nd();" style="list-style:none; padding:5px 5px 5px 5px; border-top:1px solid #FFFFFF; border-bottom:1px solid #FFFFFF;">

I'm getting an error when clicking the link.

We need to see ALL the HTML and CSS.

“Danger, Will Robinson! my

“Danger, Will Robinson! my detectors sense a web page without a DTD, take cover.”

It could be many things, it looks as though focus is being lost over the border of the static image but without a DTD I venture no further, you could try for the sake of experimentation adding *{zoom:1;} to your style sheet and seeing if it is in anyway a hasLayout issue but it's stabbing in the dark.

Before you make your first post it is vital that you READ THE POSTING GUIDELINES!

Since CSS rules only apply to valid html or xhtml, if you choose not to make your code valid you have no basis for complaining that your page doesn't look right. If you give a browser invalid html the browser is on it's own and different browsers will render different types of invalid code differently, since there is then no standard for them to apply.

Put a transitional doctype declaration in there. That's what transitional doctypes are for.

I filled my petrol car up with diesel yesterday. I know I shouldn't have but that's a whole different matter.

Q. Why doesn't my car work now?
