Hello Alexis,

I think that there has been some text copied directly from a word document or similar and there is some code embedded in there not playing nicely with IE. This really can happen with any browser but in this case it seems to only be showing in IE.

It's quite dangerous to copy and paste rtf text directly as this can break your page or worse can actually break your site and it may not be recoverable.

I would fairly quickly remove that text and paste it into Notepad then copy it from notepad into your page. This removes all the rtf formatting code and will protect your site.

There have been a number of people affected by this and they have had to rebuild their sites. Sometimes it can look OK but then a new page addition , a new widget placed and the site crashes.

Hello Alexis,

Your pages have crashed from what it sounds. Suggest that you delete those pages quickly and redo them. I don't have access to your site so nothing I can do.
