Hey Sandy,

At a first glance I think the problem resides in the csshover.htc file.
I haven't really looked into that file, but when I load the page without
that its very fast.

Good luck!

You should definately have a look at this. It locked up my laptop (PIII 
800 MHz, 256MB RAM) for nearly one minute at first load. After the page 
was locally cached by IE, the loading went faster, thought still 
rendering the laptop nearly unaccessible for 10-20 seconds.

It loaded the page quite quickly, but when it started loading the 
images, it seemed to stop.
