So i'm creating a site that will add more rows to a table when you click on a button. Three tables, three buttons. I start randomly adding rows to the tables and then wham! there is a bunch of html garbage printing at the bottom of the page. Check the source and it looks like the HTML stopped printing to the browser.
I reset the tables, randomly add a few rows to the tables, everything is working fine and wham! there it is again. This time it stopped printing code at a different location.
I'm stumped at this point because its not in a place where there is any code being proccesses. Its in the middle of printing html. The page just stops running.
I drop a ticket to the server support to see if there is a problem with the servers that would create this and they can't recreate the problem.
I try it on three other computers here and the same thing happens. Now just for curiosity sake and good programmer testing we try it in Netscape and what do we find. Not a single problem! Flawless! It only happens in our version of IE 6 (newest updated version).
We've now come to the conclusion that there is a problem with IE and maybe a combination of that and the server that causes the page to stop loading. It seems to happen at the bottom of the page only, after the tables.
Could it be the speed? Could it be the browser? Could it be both? Is is something else? Has anyone heard of/seen this type of problem before?
Is there a way to maybe speed up the processing of CGI? Is using includes faster then loading the code in the same page?
Chalking up another headache to Mr. Gates,
