I've got a webpage that hides divs using the off left method whereby hidden divs float 4000 pixels to the left of the screen, instead of actually being hidden. I was unable to take the approach of using display:none because this page has embedded google maps within the hidden divs and google maps becomes buggy when using this approach. The approach I've been taken has worked fine, except for older versions of internet explorer -> when 'unhiding' the divs, ie does not display images (google maps), though it does reserve space for them. Furthermore, images do seem to appear after resizing the browser window, but not before that like they should. Does anybody have any ideas as far as how to get this approach to work with older versions of ie or other approaches to hiding/showing divs other than the ones I've described?
