Recently added a Facebook Fan/Like box widget to one of our sites. We used the following code and it worked great in our development environment when we tested it on Firefox and Safari.
<fb:fan href="http://www.facebook.com/obiweb" profileID="115185598512736" width="210" height="600" connections="0"></fb:fan>
But as is all too often the case when we tested it on IE it failed. No errors just a big blank space.
After some investigation it turns out that IE needs the Facebook namespace defined in the html tag. Adding the namespace as shown below fixed the problem.
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" xmlns:fb="http://www.facebook.com/2008/fbml">
The end result can be found on the Obiweb blog.
