How can i get rid of asp:Menu flickering?

I'm using ASP.net/C# with Visual Studio 2008. When any postback happens and the page gets rendered again the menu "flickers" for a moment and all  menu items are shown before a return to the normal display. I've found some suggestions, but nothing has worked so far.

this is the trick I read in some places (I presume you are using Master Pages?)
The flickering is because asp:Menu uses javascript to set some inline styles.

hence, set your css file:
#menu ul li ul
{
    display: none;
}

#menu ul li 
{
    position: relative; 
    float: left;
    list-style: none;
}

Open in new window


and the flickering should be gone.
the trick is that the display will be "none" by default (while building the menu) and then showing only what is needed when done, and not building "all visible" and then hiding what is not needed

I am using a Master page. I did find that code and tried it, but the flicker still occurs. My style sheet is attached. Could I have something else in there messing with it?Site.css

I found some contradictory information in some documents... some write that #menu should do, other places I find that .menu should do:
.menu ul li ul
{
    display: none;
}

.menu ul li 
{
    position: relative; 
    float: left;
    list-style: none;
}    

Open in new window

This did not work, either. I'm still trying to figure it out but looking at different ways to render a menu, too.
