SYMPTOMS
If you use the Japanese Input Method Editor (IME) to type Japanese text in a text area that is embedded in a table, it may take a long time for the characters to be displayed on the screen.
CAUSE
The delay occurs because the Microsoft HTML Object Library (Mshtml.dll) code attempts to update all of the tables on the page instead of updating only the table that contains the text area.
