Fixing the IE CSS flicker bug
The most maddening IE CSS bug is the IE Flicker Bug, where images applied to anchors via CSS can flicker or disappear when the mouse is hovered over them. The bug has always been a real pain to fix using CSS alone, and sometimes it’s impossible to fix without re-writing both the HTML and CSS.
Here’s a way to completely stop IE flickering on hover, via an IIS server setting, without needing to change any CSS or HTML. The same principal can be used for Apache.
I would like to shake the hand of the guy that did this.
