      Hi Pierre,

      I made sure my application validated with HTML transitional (I can't
      use html strict because I need the target attribute of the form,
      unfortunately). Testing with FF, I still saw the problem with
      the tab view not rendering correctly, but at least I saw the behavior
      you mentioned: reloading from the server displayed the problem, but
      reloading from cache did not.

      I then followed your advice to put the tabview instantiation into a
      window.onload function and it worked. The javascript that worked for me:

      function addLoadEvent(func) {
      var oldonload = window.onload;
      if (typeof window.onload != 'function') {
      window.onload = func;
      } else {
      window.onload = function() {
      if (oldonload) {

      addLoadEvent( function() {
      var myTabs = new YAHOO.widget.TabView("app");
      } );

      I put this where the examples just have the object instantiation.

      addLoadEvent is from

      I should have mentioned in the original post that I am using version
      0.12.0 of the YUI.

      Thanks again for your help!
