Ok, its going to be easier for me to show you whats happening here:

http://www.kingpins-...at/mainpage.php

Just type a name in to start the "chat". Its set up at the moment so that it will just show content from a php page, but it checks that every 2 seconds. If you try it in firefox, everything works fine - because the content doesn't change it looks like its not even trying to refresh it. But if you try in IE, it appears to flicker and the scroll bars jump up and down - im wondering if this is something to do with IE not cutting the text off properly at the end of the cell.

Im using CSS to achieve the scroll bar inside the table with overflow: auto;

Im not sure if my problem lies with my ajax or with my css/javascript or perhaps it is just IE

If anyone can point me in the right direction it would be much appreciated.

You may want to check out an old post of mine.. http://www.phpfreaks....html#msg449768

If I were you I would look at the getChat function..

Good Luck,
Tom

Im definately getting there...its not a problem with my ajax as if i use your stylesheet and html with my javascript/ajax, it seems to work fine...

So ive just got to work from yours to mine to find out whats not working.
