Spot the smiley, Jim. I asked Misha for more details.

I'm currently in deep discussions with several people simultaneously 
spread over the world trying to track this down.

At the moment we have apparently identical versions of IE giving 
different results on different machines, so we are still looking it to 
what could be causing some people to be able to see it, and others not to.

It's not being served as XML, so C14 shouldn't be relevant here, but it
