: I've just been working on a page of our site that has, if I'm honest, way
: too many embedded tables for its own good. However it's the design we're
: using at the moment, so it's gonna have to stay that way for the moment! The
: problem is that in Netscape 4.7 several of our pages take ages to draw. I'm
: getting times of up to 20, 30 seconds for a single page.

: What tips do folks have for reducing drawing times for Netscape 4? I've
: checked that all images have width and height, but apart from that I'm open
: to any suggestions (apart from reducing the number of tables which, sadly,
: is not an option at present.
 ¬ ¬ ¬ ¬ ¬ ¬ ¬ ¬ ¬ ¬

do you have a link we can look at?

netscape won't display the page until the last (matching) closing
table tag is read and afaik there is nothing that can be done about
this apart from (as you already have mentioned) making the tables
smaller - though breaking up the tables would help, not actually
reducing the number - but w/out seeing the code i have no idea if this
is an option

(i am sure some1 will correct me if i'm wrong)
