I've noticed that when I use the tabstrip, I often see the ul-li list elements briefly before the tabstrip is rendered.  Is there a general approach to prevent this flicker of the list before the tabstrip is rendered?

Hello Kevin,

I suppose the delay is about 1-2 seconds and then the TabStrip starts looking normally, is that correct? This phenomenon can occur due to different reasons. For example:

- the Kendo UI Javascript files are registered after some other script files, which take time to evaluate or execute. In this case change the script files order
- the widget initialization relies on some slow scripts to be executed first
- the CSS stylesheets are registered in the <body>. Please move them to the <head>

To work around this, I've hidden the div containing the list (ul-li elements) until after the kendo tabstrip has been initialized.  I just show a "loading" div in its place before the tabstrip is initialized.  This effectively solved the problem.
