Hi Experts,

Am having a bit of a nightmare on my site http://www.shanedj.com

It works brilliantly in Firefox and IE8 but not IE7, It is designed and validates to XHTML Strict but runs really slow and takes forever to move pages.

There is a 1x1px png on the main content div giving a transparent look so that you can see the background.
It also uses sIFR for the headings and it has an Ajax RSS Ticker and the menu is created in CSS

I have deactivated the parts that I thought may slow the site down but still nothing.

Can anyone find the issue that I may have as its driving me nuts! :)

Actually black-trans.png is 2x2. Try making it 20x20 or 40x40.  IE is slow at tiling images.


P.S. The links under "Stalk Shane" sure look like a list to me. Are you sure you don't want to mark it up as one?
