Body shows then disappears only in ie

For some reason my page shows the main body for a second on ie and then disappears. It works fine on every other browser and on every other page works on ie which is pretty much the same code. Any help would be great

Sweet thanks Paul that did it!


It’s probable because you are givng ie7 and 8 the png script which should only go to ie6.

Try this.

[B]<!--[if lte IE 6]>[/B]

<script>  var bgsleight    = function() {
    function addLoadEvent(func) {
        var oldonload = window.onload;
        if (typeof window.onload != 'function') {
            window.onload = func;
        } else {
            window.onload = function() {
                if (oldonload) {
    function fnLoadPngs() {
        var rslt = navigator.appVersion.match(/MSIE (\\d+\\.\\d+)/, '');
        var itsAllGood = (rslt != null && Number(rslt[1]) >= 5.5);
        for (var i = document.all.length - 1, obj = null; (obj = document.all[i]); i--) {
            if (itsAllGood && obj.currentStyle.backgroundImage.match(/\\.png/i) != null) {
                obj.attachEvent("onpropertychange", fnPropertyChanged);

    function fnPropertyChanged() {
        if (window.event.propertyName == "style.backgroundImage") {
            var el = window.event.srcElement;
            if (!el.currentStyle.backgroundImage.match(/x\\.gif/i)) {
                var bg    = el.currentStyle.backgroundImage;
                var src = bg.substring(5,bg.length-2);
                el.filters.item(0).src = src;
       = "url(x.gif)";

    function fnFixPng(obj) {
        var bg    = obj.currentStyle.backgroundImage;
        var src = bg.substring(5,bg.length-2); = "progid:DXImageTransform.Microsoft.AlphaImageLoader(src='" + src + "', sizingMethod='scale')"; = "url(x.gif)";
    return {
        init: function() {
            if (navigator.platform == "Win32" && navigator.appName == "Microsoft Internet Explorer" && window.attachEvent) {


You should move the script to an external js file anyway and just call it from within the Conditional comments.

I’d also point out you have NOTHING that warrants the use of alpha transparency .png in the first place on that page. (is all that garbage scripting REALLY worth a lousy drop-shadow?) and you’ve got a bunch of other stuff in there that has no place in your HTML after about 2001.

Like WIDTH, like ALIGN, Like a TABLE for a menu…

… and that’s before we talk about bold tags doing HEADING’s job, paragraph tags not wrapping paragraphs, line breaks doing block level tag’s job, almost as many markup errors as there are lines of markup (the validator throwing it’s hands up in disgust after the unencoded scripting), much less the vague/meaningless class names…

Or the outright heading abuse with the nonsensical H3’s (invalid heading order) in the MENU (!?!)

Lemme guess, Dreamweaver?
