    There appears to be a bug in IE9 when it comes to rendering whitespace between table elements which are generated in an ajax update. You can see the effects of this bug in the attached before and after screen shots. After an ajax update the top row of the table gets shifted to the right because an extra column is inserted just in that row. I have found several threads relating to this IE9 bug:

    http://stackoverflow.com/questions/7267014/ie9-table-has-random-rows-which-are-offset-at-random-columns

    Most of the posts seem to point to the elimination of spaces between <.td></td> tags as a work around, but I believe I have done that and the issue still occurs.

    Anyhow, is Telerik aware of this IE9 bug? If so, I wonder if Telerik can implement the whitespace scrubbing method shown in the second forum listed here when generating the content being sent through AJAX.

    Any thoughts/ideas on how to avoid this issue? Microsoft doesn't seem to be in a hurry to fix it.

    Hello Albert,

    We are not aware of such IE9 bug and haven't meet it in our implementations with RadAjax controls.
    If it is convenient for you could you please open a regular support ticket and send us sample runnable application which demonstrates the issue after ajax request using some of our RadAjax components.
    Thus we will be able to further research on the problem and provide any statement  if there is any possible workaround we could implement.

    Greetings,
