Using Firefox 1.0.1 on either Mac or PC, hover over the 'Web Design' link while looking at the top of the page. There is a flicker of the DHTML menu. Only happens on first hover, reload the page to see it again.

From what I can tell this is because of the doctype. This causes flicker:
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN"
"http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" lang="en" xml:lang="en">

This does not:
<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN">
<html>

No flicker example: http://www.munzamedia.co.uk/ttri_site/index.htm

Must have been fixed in FF1.0.4 or be so imperceptable as to avoid my notice on several attempts (each with reload).
