<a href="Link 1" onmouseover="change1();" class="l2">
<div id="test"> </div>
when the cursor is hover on the link, a pic would appear in the div#test as a background (size is almost 600 by 200), the problem is with msie where in it lags, and appears to download or recheck the image again instead having the hover to change instantly like in mozilla.
is there a way to accomplish and remove the lag in msie?
There is a supposed fix for this using CSS alone, involving having only one background image, and changing its position on hover. But that doesn't work at all on older PC's running MSIE, the result is far worse than your current problem, they call it the 'flickering problem', but it's actually 'total display failure problem', if you test on a slow old pc and you'll see the problem right away, which unfortunately people don't do before putting that out as a solution.
