Hi, I really don't see how pages can flash if you use transitions. The whole point of them is that the new page is loaded into memory before it is shown. Try putting this META tag in the head of each page: <META HTTP-EQUIV="Page-Enter" CONTENT = "RevealTrans (Duration=4, Transition=23)"> <META HTTP-EQUIV="Page-Exit" CONTENT = "RevealTrans (Duration=4, Transition=23)"> for more info on the values see: http://www.bravenet.com/reviews/archives/tips.php?view=46 Cheers, Richard www.richardinfo.com ----- Original Message ----- From: "roland dunn" <roland at nykris.com> > A few people kindly replied, suggesting we look at > http://www.webdevelopersjournal.com/wacky/transitions/transitions.html, > http://www.htmlgoodies.com/beyond/hta.html, and the use of <body > style="overflow: hidden">. > > We've tried all these things, and the pages still flash.
