Okay, I've solved that problem: IE can't handle assigning content to a <span 
id="search_results"></span>, it can only handle assigning to a <div>. I've now 
changed this to a div, which I show/hide when necessary.

I'm now working on this...

This works now.
The only problem with it is that texi2html creates *.html rather than 
*.lang.html files and thus all links point to the English version :( Wouldn't 
it be better anyway to make texi2html create *.lang.html files in the first 
place rather than doing the rename in out self-baked scripts?

I've now improved the CSS a bit, but I'm no graphics designer, so it still 
looks basically the same way as before...
