Happy New Year Gurus!

I have a head scratcher here. Our web site (http://www.thermon.com) is 
viewable from everywhere in the world with the exception of some of our 
Chinese associates. Their attempts to access the page/site leave them with 
a blank HTML page with the browser's response in IE being "Done".

All of the pages are generated via ASP, so I created an HTML replica of one 
ASP page (http://www.thermon.com/default2.html) and found that they could 
access that page just fine. (I was following a rather obscure lead on 
this.) They had been able to view the site previously.

Here is what I could find out;

IE v5.00
Some are using Windows 98, Chinese, some WinNT, some W2K.
We had someone else use the same ISP and they were able to access the site.

I have been researching and pulling on my hair for over a week. It's not a 
MIME type issue, it's not a header issue, and it's not a cache problem of 
some sort as far as I can tell. I asked if they had made any changes 
recently and I was told that they had not. Has anyone seen this problem before?
