    I've had those kind of things happening ever since the first release of Internet Exploder for Mac OS X. I even have full pages which come up blank repeatedly. Apparently, their rendering engine is so fast that you can't even see the text as it goes by. :)

    Edit: It seems that I can't spell either. :(

    So I'm not the only one? Good. You'd think that by now M$ could spend a little time and fix this annoying problem! I can't believe they haven't addressed this.

    resize your window. and I've gotten that in non-IE apps (photoshop, AI quite a bit), so it can't be all the IE dev's fault. OSX still is quite buggy

    maybe, maybe not

    A resize may help, I'm not sure. But this was happens when I select text. As it has to redraw for each new character selected, the missing text appears and some other text disppears. So if I select a sentence, my whole screen does a dance... then stops when I stop, with whichever words that were missing last, missing. Gives me a headache. :confused:

    I had many many re-draw problems with IE in OSX. I got fed up and moved to Netscape 7 (no screen draw problems). I was astonished how much quicker it was! I'll never go back. Why not give it a go? I dont reckon you will regret it.
