    Why does my site blink when loading a page every time?

    This web site I built blinks every time I try to go from one page to another. What I mean by blinking is that the page shows expanded look of layers underneath before it displays the completed look of it. If this is a sloppy explanation, please take a look at my site to get an idea.


    Although the blinking lasts for less than 1/2 second, I find this very annoying. I believe that the site visitors will also be bothered by this blinking effect happening when loading every single sub-page.

    Is there anything that can be done to eliminate this blinking stage??
    I would greatly appreciate our expert members advice!

    You have used <img> tags for styling your webpage which isn't correct and not semantic. You may consider setting a wide back strip having 1px height as the background.

    Another issue is your use of tables for making your layout, which also considered as very bad.

    Besides the above, using a code like
    <div id="headerMain">  </div>
    causes divitis in your markup, and such cases can be easily avoided by setting suitable margins to the subsequent elements.
