Content of grid content dissapears using IE 7.0 sp 2. & activewidgets 2.5.1

I have my extended activewidgets version 2.5.1 grid loaded with 20 rows by using an XML data island but the content is not getting displayed in IE 7. Each time I refresh the browser the content is visible (flickers) for a very short period of time and then the content dissapears. The grid is inside a division tag and I have the virtual rendering on. I tried refreshing the grid but it didn't fixed the problem. This problem started happening to thousand of users in my organization after they upgraded from IE 6 to IE 7. Everything works fine in IE 6 and Firefox. The problem is not consistent so I suspect it is a catching problem in the IE 7 browser. I'm using Tomcat 6 and JSP pages. Could it be an MS activeX disabled by the IE security settings?

Have anybody encountered this problem? Any ideas to prevent this problem from happening?

could you post (or send me) some example of this problem? Also do you see any difference in machine configurations where this problem does/does not happen?

You found the problem. As you said it was related to the doctype. Removing the strict from the doctype fixed the problem in the IE 7 browser. The "strict" in the doctype wasn't really needed for our web application.

<!doctype html public "-//w3c//dtd html 4.0 strict//en"> ---> old

<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4//EN"> ---> new

Thanks for your help,
