I've got a drag and drop interface working using bbc's glow, its great, but I have a slight problem.
The script at the top of the page creates the widgets using dom functions. It gets the order from a string stored in a cookie. The widgets are also in the page as a default layout incase JS is turned off.
This works fine in FF. However in IE, the default widget layout flashes for a couple of seconds, then JS creates the new layout. Is there anyway to stop this?
Is it to do with the way IE reads the page?
I have abasic example here, if you drag and drop a heading in a blue box, refresh the page, you should see the default appear for a few seconds before the JS kick in.
Can anyone please help?
You must be kidding: in IE6 the code does not work at all (nor you should worry - let's hope IE6 will dissapear till the end of the year)
Now, at a first glance: You have used an XHTML Doctype, but a HTML notation for the nonempty elements. Make up your mind: XHTML or HTML?. My advice: if you do not need to handle XML objects, use a HTML 4.01 strict Doctype (and HTML notation). It will be enough.
Thanks for your reply.
It works for me in IE6???!!!! sorry I dont understand.
I've changed it to strict but I get the same problem.
It simply does not work for me : IE 6.0.2900.2180 on XP/SP2. No error. Just that the drag'n'drop does not work.
And: you still have the XHTML Doctype.

Thanks again for our reply.
Thats very weird.
Its deffo here:
I done a refresh and the page definately works in IE 6.0.3790
Could you try again for me please?
If you move a widget and refresh the page, whilst it loads it shows the default layout. I was after a way to stop that.
I have tested the page in all the browsers I have.
It works on: IE7, IE8, FF 3.5, Opera 10, Chrome, Safari (for Win)
It does not work on: IE6
OS: Win XP/SP2
It is true that my IE6 is not independent, it is a part of a virtual IE Collection (which helped me to install the IE versions all together), but this would not matter, as far as I know.
