Using cufon 'manually' not the wordpress plugin.... I've got a delay on many page loads in Safari and FF around the Cufon enabled titles....
Attempted moving Cufon greater up (eg before wordpress_mind() and also the wordpress plugin code that calls, with no real effect.
Some pages not a problem but others only a lengthy enough delay to become annoying.
I am not necessarily interested in hiding the titles prior to the page load completes out of the box recommended elsewhere. Whether it loads immediately a few of the time, I question if it may be designed to 'all' of times :) My connection speed is nice.
Thank you for any applying for grants this.
