Hy Joshua,

thanks for you're reply. It's disturbing that you don't get the
whiteout Problem (i was able to reproduce it on several mashines
including the vanilla IE7 VPC image from MS). To you're suggestions.
The scrolling behaviour is unpleasant in IE7 however there is no
application code involved in the scrolling (IE does this on it's own).
As for the focusing of the error field i will think about that
problem, when the error is shown (only when the field has focus) i
have to change the dom to display the error msg wich is pulled from
the server.

best regards
