I was at my in-laws house and my blog wouldn’t show up in IE 7 on their computer. Hmm. It would just sit there and spin, and all you would see is a blank page.
After some digging, this isn’t a rare thing:
When you open a Web page in Windows Internet Explorer 7, the page is blank. However, if you refresh the Web page, its contents may appear.
This problem may occur when either of the following conditions is true:
- The Web page uses the <SCRIPT> tag.
- The Web page uses multibyte character set (MBCS) characters. For example, the Web page contains Japanese characters.
To fix the bugger I actually reinstalled Windows Script Host, rebooted, and all worked.
However, how many people are going to work that out / bother. Ouch.
