I'm having a problem with Win/IE 5.0:

I'm using css-defined background images for several non-floated elements of this site, including the blue page titles and the top line of my footer.

Some show up, others don't show up initially, but when I reload they magically appear.

before reload:

after reload:

site: site

css: css

Any ideas or help appreciated![/url]

P.S.

By the way, besides the reloads, the back/forward buttons trigger the bug sometimes as well.

In a lot of ways it resembles the peek-a-boo bug, but without the float. None of the peek-a-boo fixes work either. . .

one solution

Well, I was able to finally find a solution to this problem, it's a bit hacky, but then so is a text-indent:-9999px; isn't it?

anyway, if anyone is interested, the relevant hack is here:

If anyone knows a more elegant way to fix this, I would still love to hear it.[/url]
