Disappearing text

P: n/a
Hi All,

I have a bit of a weird problem.

The text I have on a webpage is only visible half on initial pageload.

When I move the mouse over the area where the text should be with the
right mouse button pressed, it apears again, same when I scrll down
the page and back up. When I than refresh the page, the text is gone
again.

I've checked and re-checked the HTML and I've run my CSS through the
W3C's validator, all seems ok.....

Is this a CSS related issue ? My browser is IE6 with all appl.
patches, running on XP Home. I don't havethis prob with any other
pages.

The url is http:www.sgtclog.nl/sports.htm

Can anyone shed some light on this please ?

Thank you in advance

Erik Schulp pounced upon this pigeonhole and pronounced:
Hi All,

I have a bit of a weird problem. .... The url is http:www.sgtclog.nl/sports.htm


p {
font-family: Verdana, Times New Roman;
font-size: x-small;
font-style: italic;
margin-top: 0px;
text-align: justify;
color: #FE0000;
margin:0px 10px 10px 10px;...

...is very hard to read. Why are you mixing serif and sans-serif fonts?

Try:
p {
font-family: sans-serif;
font-size: 100%;
color: black;
} /* No justify, set margins ... */

In Firebird/Mozilla, your text is on top of your pictures in the center
column.

Why is there a <span> inside each paragraph? What are the classes "p1",
"p2" etc that I don't see in your style sheet? Could these <span>s be a
cause of your posted problem?

Hoping this helps...

Dear Jim,
This indeed seems to be the problem.

And I now know why it only occurs on this particular page.

Thanks :)
