I bet that's the following chunk of code, and I suspect you have your
Security level set to "high":

<p class="ahem"><object class="ahem" type="text/html"
data="javascript:''"><big>This site will look much better in a browser
that supports <a href="http://www.webstandards.org/upgrade/"
target="ala" title="The Web Standards Project's BROWSER UPGRADE
initiative.">web standards</a>, but it is accessible to any browser or
Internet device.</big>

Does that help?
