slideDown flicker with DOCTYPE

bidwellm

The slideDown function is flashing if I use it on a page with a doctype of
'<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN">'.
Unfortunately the site is on a Domino server which does not let me change
the doctype.  Does anyone have any ideas of how I might be able to fix
this?

Here is a test page.  It is pretty minimal effect on this page, but the
flicker is much more pronounced on my prototype page.

Thanks,

Matt

I've looked at it in IE and FF, and it only happens in IE, so I'm
guessing its something to do with quirks mode. Sorry I can't be any
further help.

Sorry, yes the problem is limited to IE.  The lack of a .dtd in the doctype
causes IE to go into quirks mode.  I was hoping someone might know what
quirks mode was doing differently to see if there is a CSS solution to the
flashing.

Thanks,

Matt

Yeah, I wish I could but that breaks all of the Lotus systems (e.g. email).

Thanks,
