At the HTML level, are your pages in one big table? If so, Netscape will
often need to wait until the whole contents of the table is downloaded
before attempting to render it.

To get around this, you need to specify the size of just about
**everything** in the table.

I think it is the same with IE too. Mozilla doesn't have that problem,
with its incremental layout.

Can you see the stream of data coming if you telnet to your server and
type GET / HTTP/1.0 or whatever? Is it just that the rendering is slow
because some part of the page is slow to load?
