I am forced to use "image text" quite often in web design. In Illustrator, a text edit, for example, after highlighting a few words and typing in the replacement text, may take 20 full seconds to render and take effect !?! If my client were looking over my shoulder, he'd have a fit ! Multiply that by many, many edits, and you have a serious productivity issue.
Has anyone else experienced this unholy delay in Illustrator CS text rendering? Is there something one can do about it? I'm just talking about having my typing appear on the page, nothing more. I type in a "vacuum," and twenty seconds later the text appears. This is intolerable.
Any help is hugely appreciated.

What kind of system is this -- Mac, PC? How many fonts do you have? How much memory in your system? How much drive space for Illustrator and the scratch disk?
