I'm working on a site that was designed to load the content pane first and then the masthead, nav bar and footer.

When I first go to the site the CSS is not being recognized in the content pane; however, the masthead, nav bar and footer all look fine. If I refresh the page or move to another page and come back to the home page the CSS is used and the page looks fine.

This seems to be happening only in IE 6. I've checked this in Mozilla and Opera and they both work fine.

You can view the site at: http://roger.cayrealestate.com/

Any ideas on why this is happening?

CSS Only Partially Executing on First View (IE Only)

Hi drmaves,
I'd start by validating the markup as you have two doctypes etc which may be causing problems.

Hope that helps

CSS Only Partially Executing on First View (IE Only)

Here's where I'm at...as some have suggested I've validated the CSS and the HTML and corrected any issues I found; however, I still have the problem.

When you first visit http://roger.cayrealestate.com look at the main content pain while clicking the Refresh button on your browser. You should see the body copy change to a smaller size, while the rest of the page stays the same.

After this refresh there are no further problems for the current session. If you exit the browser and wait a while the CSS is removed from memory and the problem occurs again on your next visit.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
