Force CSS style before display on screen / HTTPS slowdown?
Posted on 2006-05-15
I have been developing a booking service with a calendar showing six weeks at a time by 42 ASP:LinkButton, having a dynamic look depending on availability etc.
This has been working fairly quick on my computer, even when accessing it over the Internet from another location. When I moved everything to the prod serve, things started to slow down a bit, particularly with the calendar. I use CSS to set the font, alignment etc in the linkbuttons, but on the prod server the calendar shows a glimpse of another look for a split second before the CSS chages it to be correct. For example: I have the font set to arial, no underline and alignment set to center in the CSS. For a short time, when the page loads, the font is times new roman underlined and the alignment is left.
Is it any way that I can "force" the look to take the CSS style into account before the page is displayed?
