    Too Many Combo Boxes in IE5 (5.5)

    Hi, I have created an html page with 60+ comboboxes on, and am having problems displaying the page in IE5.5 (boxes start overlapping and dissapearing). I have been told this is a bug in IE, has anyone experienced a similar problem, and if so, how did you get around it?

    Thanks.
    Roger.

    Might be difficult, the page is on an intranet, and the HTML is generated by a java Servlet.

    It sounds as if the page is far to complex anyway. That many comboboxes on a single page would be very difficult for a user.

    Can youi split it up into a number of smaller pages, no more than 5 comboboxes on a page?

    I'm a little late to the party, but I'd have to echo Geoff's advice. Simplify the page to multiple pages, perhaps mocking the look and feel of a wizard. Good luck!
