Help ? Why doesn't my site display in Internet Explorer 8

The blog works in most browsers on PC and Mac - firefox, opera, chrome, safari, everything displays normally. I'm using Wordpress 2.8.

Using IE8, however, the main page doesn't display. Individual posts and pages (like http://jacksoncouse.com/beingthere/2009/05/17/fried-brains/ ) will display, but not the home page.

What is going on here?!

Here's what I would try. Remove all widgets and disable all pluging and see if it shows up.

If it shows up, you know it's a problem with one of them, add them back in till you can isolate which it is.

If it doesn't show up, change the number of posts displayed on the frontpage (WP Dashboard-> Settings-> Reading-> Blog pages show at most) to 1
that will tell you if it is a problem with one of your posts (I noticed a post with embedded youtube...who knows)

I'm having the same issue, in I.E once logged in to my admin account the posts on the main page disapear. This is something which has happened recently... not sure what it is.

Note: It used to occur even when logged out but I updated a couple plugins and now the posts are showing when logged out. I'm still trying to figure it out once logged in, any ideas?

Thanks.

What version of WP and Atahualpa are you on?
Does it happen in Firefox?
Have you tried disabling all widgets?

I'm using WP ver. 2.7.1 and Atahualpa 3.3.2. I think it only happens in I.E, Firefox is ok. This is something that just started a couple days ago and I didn't add any new widgets recently. I was thinking maybe a plugin needs to be updated? (user community, simple forums)

Any help would be great thanks Juggledad.

I think I figured it out, we have multiple authors and it seems someone else was using MS Word. Lets hope thats all it was.

Ahhh, if you do a copy from Word and past it into the post all sorts of strange things can happen because of the invisible formatting characters.
