The problem is that most of the IMG tags and the JavaScript have the 
slashes in the wrong direction (ie they are back slashes '\' rather 
than forward slashes '/'). This will work on Windows machines running 
IE. It will not work on any other OS/browser combination.

For example Looking at the source of the page
you can see at the beginning of the script:
<script language="JavaScript" type="text/JavaScript">
	var imageHome = "..\\images\\home\\";

Where the slashes for the base directory used throughout the script 
are the wrong way round.

Or as another example the first image on the page:
<img style="Z-INDEX: 100; LEFT: 20px; POSITION: absolute; TOP: 20px" 
alt="Welcome" src="..\images\home\header_home.gif">

The problem is that IE on Windows is broken and renders things with 
back slashes '\' as if they were forward slashes '/'. And that some 
web designers are lazy and only test their web pages with IE.
