Seems to work ok with WinXp-SP2 and IE6 ... but I don't understand 
what you are doing or what to look for. I moved and resized the 
highlight boxes, and didn't notice any jumpiness. Then I dragged the 
actual picture around, and didn't notice jumpiness.

What I did notice ... when I resized the highlight box to be taller, 
it became larger than the picture, and I wasn't able to reduce the 
height ???
