Just tried with IE8, and with the Getting Started manual I get this when 
I view the source:
<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN">
<META content="text/html; charset=utf-8" http-equiv=Content-Type></HEAD>

Not sure how that last line will turn out in your email clients, but it 
is indeed garbage and you can see that the body-tag is empty. Nothing is 
rendered in the browser. We are using frames though - that's not exactly 
state-of-the-art... We are also using the wrong DOCTYPE. I'm suspecting 
that the HTML is invalid too, but haven't checked.
