Appreciate the help on this one.

I have not worked with fsockopen before either (I only
started php about 6 weeks ago which also doesn't help).
I am almost certain the delay isn't with the database because
at the point where the pause is the query has already been
executed and the result returned (all of that page's content
comes from the Db).  Thanks for the suggestion though.

Do you know of another way I could accomplish this? Someone
on my site's forum suggested that I could perhaps use fpassthru().

I've not used this function before but thought I would take a
look at it.  What do you think?

Also, I have noticed that if I select different resorts I get
different hex numbers come up. So it must have something to
do with the content.  I checked to see if the numbers were
equivalent to the number of characters upto that point
(including any html tags) but they are way off.

This is stumping a lot of people.

Thanks again for your help with this.

I don't, because if MySQL caused the problem you would see it on the
original page. I'venot worked with
fsockopen(), is there any way you can test it without hitting the database,
which may be causing a delay?

What I'm thinking is to take the page created in the original call
(www.ski-info-online.com/skiResort-print1.php?id=Alpbach), store it as
straight HTML, then call it using the same technique used in the "Printer
Friendly" code. This is puzzling.
