Flash of Unstyled Content shows up for static pages, but not dynamic?

 5:51 am on May 29, 2010 (gmt 0)

I run a PHP powered site (WordPress) and while my dynamic pages load fine, if I convert them to static pages using a caching plugin, the dreaded FOUC shows up in IE (and only IE). I have no idea why either, because I clearly have the necessary <link> tags to prevent this. I tried using the page-enter transition fix, and while that works, it adds 2-3 more seconds to the page load times. Any suggestions on fixing this would be appreciated!

Problem resolved, turns out the white flash was being caused by a <script> element that was returning a 404 error because it didn't exist. Removed that element and white flash gone!

Thanks - it's really good to know how that worked out. Must have been quite the detective exercise.

Actually I found it completely by accident. I noticed I was getting a 404 error, and when I got rid of the script element, it fixed the flash problem too. Sometimes I just get lucky. :D
