"with the illustrations"
...could this be as simple as the fact that the pictures take a while to load?
Probably not if it works in other browsers, though.
Please post a link to the page on your site that contains the problematic script so we can check it out.
And... maybe it has something to do with a lot of graphics that make IE a bit slow to display it for you... just sluggish to deal with that.
Is this only your machine? If so, might just be that your particular copy of IE has issues. Try on a couple computers, maybe, and see what that's like.
