This seems to be the IE Duplicate Characters bug from Position is Everything:

A note (added to that page in July 2004) explains that:

"...this duplicating characters bug can be triggered by other things than just HTML comments. Phil Baines points out that... even hidden inputs can do it, and presumably any other elements that don't actually display for some reason."
