Ihave a real puzzler here..
Site is built using CSS layout and contains a large (150k) flash movie. Everything renders just fine in FFox, - in IE6 (and below) however the Flash movie loads no problesm, BUT any content images and CSS backgrounds do not fully load - its very random on some pages some images load and others dont (its not always the same images)

I have been told it is becasue I am using CSS to lay the site out, but have never heard of this conflict before

This is a real Freaky one, I have been everywhere looking for answers and found nothing

any one heard of this before..?

Very desperate, would appreciate any insights..

Ah IE, damn MS! I've had this before. It is because you're using CSS, but my problem was that I was over complicating my CSS, having too many BG images. See if you can scale everything down.

thanks for the reply ahmedtheking

I did strip out most of the backgound images but found that it was happenign to embeded images too - I ended up having to put the whole flash movie in an iFrame... as I couldn't find any other solution

I have tried looking everywhere for posts on this topic, surely if this was a conflict with flash/IE/CSS and was as bigger problem as it seems to be there would be allot more about this topic generally - but alas there is not much about this anywhere (that i could find)

What I did discover was that websites where people had used the Javascript insert object script, that this throws up problems in IE when CSS is used - any other experiences and or links to topics on this with more details would be really useful.

I don't know why CSS would have anything to do with it except if it's a background image problem.

thanks for the repsonse, but I dont think it is soley to do with background images - that is the problem, I would have thought that this issue would be well docmumented somewhere unless this is a new issue - as this is a really big deal..
