Interesting solution to the FOUC dilemma!

Interesting solution to the FOUC dilemma!

Cool, I thought this was just something that I was seeing, but apparently it’s a bug in IE 6.0. There’s a temporary blip on some pages in IE 6.0 when they use the @import method of displaying a style sheet. I’ve been wondering why I couldn’t reproduce it with some of my more recent sites, and thanks to BlueRobot, the mystery is solved. Since I usually add a link to the print version of my stylesheet, you don’t see the blink on any of my more modern sites.

This was one of the last things preventing me from launching the CSS based version of TSN…now I’ve got no excuses! Damn.
