Q: Does anyone have an idea why?

there are a few places with incorrectly coded comments on your page, for example:

<!--<link rel="Shortcut Icon" href="images/icons/favicon.ico" />-->




the closing comment tag is missing the leading slash.

a correctly coded comment would look like:

<!--<link rel="Shortcut Icon" href="images/icons/favicon.ico" />/-->



i see the missing slash for the closing comment in three places, the code mentioned above, ,this code:

<!--<link href="style.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />-->



and the style a little further down:

<style type="text/css">
<!--
.style1 {
font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;
font-size: 12px;
font-weight: bold;
color:#000000;
padding-left:2px;
}
.style1 a {
text-align:justify;
text-decoration:none;
}
-->
</style>



ie is a stickler for comments.

Fixing the comments lines seem to have fixed the IE issue. You included the statement below.

Code:
<style type="text/css">
<!--
.style1 {
font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;
font-size: 12px;
font-weight: bold;
color:#000000;
padding-left:2px;
}
.style1 a {
text-align:justify;
text-decoration:none;
}
-->
</style>


Q: What am I supposed to do with it? and where did it come from? (I don't see it in the body of index.php) I take it it is part of the style sheet.

Thanks.
