Fancybox.js crashing ie

I have a website I built that has fancybox.js. When loading the page in IE, it crashes it.  Fancybox is not even being used yet, but just loading with the rest of the scripts. I have all of the correct jquery libraries linked on my pages.  This problem only happens in IE and not on FF, Chrome or Safari.

I have created a static version of the page to test here: http://www.tccc.com/tccc.html
I commented it out on the live site.  It is used on the inner pages mostly. The site is built on wordpress 3.0

I have not run across this problem anywhere else, so I cannot say where it is originating from.

Have you loaded too many libraries?
Try reduce some.
IE may crash if there are too much JS libraries.
Also check if there are conflicts between libraries.

Good luck!

I checked that because I thought it was the problem.  I actually found that in the fancybox.css you have to absolute link the frame graphics for the preloader png's and they were still linked to the testing server, not the live site. Since I am on the same domain as the testing server, I could still see the graphics so I could not find the problem right off.  Changed the server to the website address and voila, problem solved.
