    Hi all

    My new WordPress site looks perfect in Firefox but in IE the <body> & <footer> parts of the page flash to the colour of the background while loading.

    It looks pretty ugly. Does anyone know how to resolve this please?

    This is called a Flash of Unstyled Content. Google for fouc.

    Wonderful, thanks. I'll have a try with that.

    Yes indeed, it was a FOUC problem. The solution I found pretty much fixed it.

    added to header: <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" media="print" href="print.css">

    Thanks again.

    hello - just having the same problem on a site I'm creating
    http://pepperedsprout.com and looking at my source code it all seems to have gone back to front, where the content appears above the sidebar (I'd removed the header.php)- any ideas what i may need to do - thanks
