I have a more verbose explanation at home, but basically:

  - IE treats files served off the hard drive different
    than files served over a live internet connection.

I also remember something about how the language encoding is handled 
different (which causes that "invalid" error message you get when 
previewing locally).

I ran into this whilst working on AmphetaDesk [1] - if you want the more 
verbose explanation, lemme know and I'll send it when I get home.
