Layout issue: CSS ignored?

Something really weird is happening with my blog: http://blog.hoegaerden.be/

When I open it I see it getting loaded.  Once it's loaded, the CSS template seems to get switched with another one, or perhaps ignored?

Pay attention while it's loading: the white layout is what it's supposed to look like but that then gets replaced with the grey that you see when the loading has finished.

Anyone around who may have a clue what's happening here?  I'm totally baffled myself.

PS: I did not make any changes to Wordpress lately, no upgrades, nothing.  I know it has been happening for a couple of days now...

It appears that you are loading one of the Experts Exchange CSS files.  That appears to affect more than just your badge.

Right on the ball Dave, thanks!

That badge has already cost me more time than anything else.  I never got it to work (see http://www.e-e.com/Q_27564491.html) but kept it on there as a reminder to myself that I should look into it someday...

Now that I think about this a bit more, the problem might have started appearing since I got the TA role assigned two days ago!  Unless the badge system has also changed recently? Should we report this? (though I wouldn't really know how to explain this)

BTW: would you have any idea why the badge is not working?  Just now I've regenerated the script to create it and added it in a Text widget, located at the bottom in the right sidebar.  If you have any clue, please reply in my other Q :)

I would go generate the badge on the EE page, take a screenshot, and crop the screenshot for an image of the badge and use that.

I'll think about that, though I might just prefer the screenshot of my avatar as I've already done :)

Thanks for your quick solution btw, excellent!
