Why doesn't text show up in IE?
I've taken a page and stripped it down in an effort to pinpoint this problem.
Here's the URL: http://www.michlink.com/test_page.php
In IE, the H2 and P text are invisible. If I click near the upper left hand corner and drag across and down, the text appears. But if I go to another tab on my desktop, or even another IE tab, and then return, it's gone again.
It doesn't do this in Firefox.
Any idea what's going on? Thanks!

You didn't say which IE this was, but without looking at your page, my very first thought was the Usual Suspect: Haslayout.
Are you familiar with it? In IE6 it could make make lots of things disappear: backgrounds, text, floated menu items. Sometimes an action like hovering or clicking would make something appear or disappear.
IE7's not so bad, but also has HasLayout.

Sorry. I have IE 7. I will check out those links. Thank you.

Well, I "solved" the problem by wrapping the disappearing content in a new div and styling the div with "zoom: 1.0". Seems like a ridiculous thing to have to do, but it works and I guess that's all I care about for right now...
Thanks again for the info/links.
