[thelist] IE flashing white when reloading.

You could try using IE page transitions - these first load the new page into
memory, before displaying it. You can choose not to use a visual transition,
or to fade the pages into each other.

Also, when using IE locally, it can be interesting to rename your file to
app.hta. This allows running the file locally without security restrictions,
so you can read/write to the local disk, interact with Excell or Access, get
the innerHTML of pages loaded in a frameset etc.
There's a setting "maximized" and border="none" to replicate kiosk mode.
