IE leaving &nbsp in innerHTML after being cleared

Hello Everyone,

I am currently programming a folder interface in ajax and am having an issue with IE.  

I am currently using a div to display folder information when the folder is clicked, then clearing it when the folder is clicked again.  Whats happening, is the IE seems to be leaving an   in the div after I set it to "".  The program can be seen at http://www.cipherintegrations.com/cfile/file.php ......

It works correctly in FireFox, but isn't quite right in IE... the relevent function seems to be:

function clearDiv(div) {      
  document.getElementById(div).innerHTML = "";      
}

Any ideas?

Thanks!

  document.getElementById(div).style.display="none";    
}
