    Blinking background image in IE

    Level 7
      I have a css styled nav menu where the links have a little background image
      to the left of the link copy. In IE, when you mouseover the link, the image
      momentarily disappears and then comes back. In other words it flickers once
      or blinks. Though not a big deal, it's a little annoying. This doesn't
      happen in Firefox or any Mac browsers. Any ideas on how to stop the
      blinking?
      Thanks

            I'd say this is due to your cache preferences. IE users with default
            settings do not experience the flickering.

              In IE, go to Tools > Internet Options. On the General tab, click the
              Settings button for Temporary Internet files. Set "Check for newer
              versions of stored pages" to Automatically.

                Thanks loads David! That did it. I'm a Mac guy but I check all my work on a
                PC. What I know about the inner workings of Microsoft based stuff wouldn't
                fill a thimble.
