Java Menu Bar does not display properly after publishing on IIS

I created a small intranet website for my company.  At the top of each page is a menu bar made with Javascript.  It views fine from the html editors, and also when using internet explorer to view it locally (see example A).  

However, after I publish it to the IIS server, and then view it on the SAME computer (but also any computer) over the network the menu bar loses its mojo, and turns into a big square box (See example B).  

I am assuming this has nothing to do with the clients and something to do with IIS?

Just to update this a bit...

I found that if I use the server hosts IP address in the url instead of the host name the menu bar is normal.  

Now I wonder if there is some web filter involved?

has nothing to do with iis.  It is a network issue between the web server and the client

open the site on the webserver (from the iis  menu on the far right select browse :80

Hi!  if I browse:80 the site looks normal.  If I browse the link below that, hostname on *.80 it has the wacky menu.  So what does this mean?

What it means to me is that something is interfering between the two. Any internet security items running i.e. avg or symantec?  It could also be your internet explorer security settings.

we have a web filter, but I whitelisted it.  

I wonder if it has something to do with the dns forward lookup.  Its only after this forward that this happens.

ok, I think I am closer.  This seems to happen once AD replicates the hostname to the "Intranet zone" and applies it to the end user's workstation IE config.  SO perhaps it is a setting in the intranet zone config.
