IE5 Page loading incorrectly until Refresh

Hello,

I am currently having a problem with IE version 5.0 on windows. When
you first enter the site I am working on the Layout is OK. When you
click on any of the links, the layout is screwed up. Once I hit
refresh, however, the page loads correctly.

I am using the following technology:
XHTML Transitional 1.0
CSS (For layout, all tags are <DIV>'S)
XML
ASP.net
There is a single IFRAME for a drop-down select on the page.

The odd thing is that on my local machine, when I test it, the error
doesn't occur, it is only on the Live version.

That's the live version for which you didn't supply a URL, thus preventing
us from even investigating the problem?

Any ideas?

Cheers,

Looks good here, although I don't have IE5.0 on hand. All your <img>s have
width and height specified, which was my first guess.

The validator is showing several errors:

http://validator.w3.org/check?uri=ht...dexcel.org.uk/

You need to use &amp; instead of &, but that shouldn't be causing the
errors. You need to specify a media type in your script tags, like this:

<script type="text/javascript">

but that shouldn't cause the error. The only error you have that may be
causing the problem is the mismatched </ul> on line 732. Fix that and all
the other minor errors, and come back if the problem persists.

There are also a couple of minor errors in your CSS:

but they shouldn't affect the outcome. You ought to fix them anyway, though.

Hi Mark,

The error was fixed by putting tables around the breaking sections as
opposed to CSS. This is not the perfect remedy, but IE5 is not the
perfect browser. We also cleaned up the code to validate, which I'm
sure helped us out. I'm really not 100% on what the exact problem was,
but at least it's fixed!

Thanks for your comments, much appreciated.

Paul
