IE 5 Mac Table SLOW...

I'm generating a large table from an FMPro database (20 columns/fields X 786 rows/records). This comes up in ~10 seconds on IE and Netscape on Windows and Netscape Mac, but IE (5) Mac takes 40+ seconds to display it. It even takes 40+ seconds to close the page!

Any input please!

Displaying 786 records at once takes time. It is also impractical for the client to scroll and scroll and scroll.

Use the -max tag to limit displayed records to 25 or 50 and use the -linknext and -linkprevious tags. Clients, generally speaking, would rather click than scroll.

That is the proper logic. People will think the site is much faster with -MAX 10 or 20.

The issue is that a page that Netscape parses in 10 seconds takes over 40 seconds in IE. It is reasonble to deduce from this that there is a problem with IE.

Got nothing to do with the number of records being returned. That will enhace the perception of speed, but only by reducing the server's processing time and download time, not by improving IE's parsing efficiency.
