Slow rendering of table in IE6

I am facing an issue while trying to rendering a JSP page.

This JSP page contains 12 editable fields (like combo-box,text-box,date picker etc.) in a table along with other non-editable fields.

I use Struts Display tag to show the table and also all these controls are Struts Form-Controls as
well.

The issue is, in IE6 after the records (about 300 in a page) are shown, the page hangs for
about 2 minutes then it gets enabled.

Is there any issue in table rendering in IE6.
Could any one suggest a way out?

For your information, I am constrained to use IE6.

Thanks and Regards, Souvik

Hi,

As per your statement, 12 editable fields in table using custom tags, it will take some time.

One good performance could be using UI side libraries like Yahoo UI or Jquery etc.. It will work faster as it will be using native JSP , not like custom tags which generate java script on the fly.
See Yahoo UI library on yahoo site. Damn good it is..

Umm, no! There is no such thing as "native JSP" and client side libraries like jQuery and Yahoo have nothing at all to do with JSP whatsoever.

The fact is simply that IE sucks and is known to have performance problems rendering big tables.
