Absolutely bizarre IE behaviour....

This really is very strange... Have a look at this:

http://www.plankmeister.org.uk/new/index.html

in IE6. When it loads, the top section is blank. If you mouseover anything
in the menu half of the text suddenly appears... If you then scroll down the
page slightly and one more mouseover anything in the menu, it all appears
perfectly!!! This only seems to happen if the IE window is maximised. I've
noticed that this precise behaviour only happens at 1280x1024. But other
similar behaviour occurs at 8x6 and 10x7. I knew IE was bugged, but I didn't
know it had absolutely bizarre bugs!

It works fine in NN7.1, O7, Mozilla(latest) and Firebird(latest).

Has anyone ever seen anything like this before?

IE6 -- 800x600@maximum -- 17" screen -- text->medium
================================================

Apart from the need to horizontally scroll, it looks fine to me (no
blank areas on loading).

Can you publish a screen image to show what you're seeing?

regards.

You have css errors.

BTW, I noticed this:

body {
font-size : 80%;
}

Please fix that. It should be 100%.
