    I have a couple page where even after they are done loading, the
    status message gets stuck with "Transferring data from <host>...

    Are there some typical syntax errors in either javascript of html that
    would cause this to happen? i.e. leave something hanging so that the
    browser doesnt think its done loading?

    thanks, d

    I've had gifs and other image refreshing scripts cause this (Flash,
    rollovers, etc).

    This may be a browser-dependent thing, but I believe if the server
    doesn't send a terminating message (it's busy, got cut off, etc), the
    browser keeps that message in the status bar.

    This can happen if you have an incomplete block element ex:
    <TABLE><TR><TD>some text</TR></TABLE>

    thanks, I'll bet that's it... this page has a couple nested tables
    with the source editted by hand. I'll go thru it more carefully!
