The Subject Does NOT relate to the known IE5 Mac Problem of not displaying new CSS on refresh.

My problem is that IE5 is implementing SOME (?) CSS and not other parts when you revisit a page that has already been loaded before. Of course the visited page displays fine on the first visit (GO FIGURE!)

I hope a few people who might be able to offer some advise will please check out the code. Its rather simple.

You can see two slightly different pages with the same problem at these links:

http://www.wjamesphoto.com/gerlovin/recentwork/02.html

if you look at the pages in IE5 and click back and forth between the top two thumbnails on the right you should see what I mean.

The style sheet for them is here:

Thanks for any help!

IE5.2 Mac Sometime Requires Refresh to Display CSS - WHA?

Thanks Time Bandit,

Although my problem was not related to the cache problem of IE5. As it turned out, IE5 Mac had some issues with too many nested Divs. I trimmed the number of Divs in the page and that finally got IE5 to redraw the page right every time. I had seen this sort of issue alluded too in other posts around the web but never really documented. For me it was definately the divs causing the problem.

FYI to all, the above links will nolonger have the problem described above.
