We use an internal survey tool which automatically generates and collates web-based surveys. It wasn't written by me. I'm having a problem with one particular page; have a look at the following:

(I've also done a simplified test case here
The page displays perfectly well in Firefox, Mozilla, Safari etc.
BUT: In IE on a PC, I've got the following problem:
- The text of the first 3 questions displays sometimes, but mostly doesn't. If they do display, refreshing the page will make them disappear.
- The last 2 questions never appear.
- The question options (A, B, C etc.) and the background boxes are fine.
- If you minimise the page, then maximise it, the first three questions re-appear. Refresh, and they're gone again.
Has anyone seen something similar before? My investigations seem to point to the JS used for validation (or an IE bug, of course) but I've been hacking at it all afternoon and still haven't fixed it!
(The form submission won't work since this is a saved copy of the file on our intranet)
that are apparently being used for positioning. Get rid of all of them and the problem goes away.
Actually the problem is replaced by a different problem, but I think you want to start with getting rid of those empty divs and then fixing the layout problem.posted by justkevin at 11:21 AM on December 13, 2005
