    15 minutes after you noticed that I fired up the page and it came up normally.

    As soon as I got online I noticed that and fortunately was around to fix the problem; I think Thomas didn't notice there was an iframe tag on that IE news post which caused the page to screw up a little bit.

    I don't think that the problem was visible for long because I checked the site just before making dinner and it was fine.

    I can't offer you a technical explanation as I'm not a web developer, but rudimentary speaking, the iframe tag is used for inserting a separate page into another.

    For example, most advertisements used on TS (specially those from Rydium), use iframe tags, so that the browser opens those into a separate page and loading of the ads is taken completely apart from the site itself.
