It used to be the case that IE would not display the contents of a table
until it had reached the closing </table>. So you could try enclosing
everything in a table with one cell? Not very CSS though!

Alternatively perhaps you could use CSS to set the position of your
enclosing div to be way off the page (hence not visible), and then
reposition it using Javascript once the page has loaded?
