Stuck on Old Values

Apparently, IE6 has trouble calculating the heights of block-level elements. Eddie Traversa of http://dhtmlnirvana.com/ found that IE6/Windows caches the values it calculates on one page of a site and then incorrectly applies those values to other pages. For instance, if the “maintext” div happened to be 300px tall on the first page of your site and 1400px tall on the following page, IE6 might display only the first 300px. Manually reloading each page “fixes” this bug by clearing the cache of the stuck initial value—until the reader clicks through to a new page and begins a new cycle of stuck values and unreadable text.
