I'm having a few issues that are causing me concern, in my paranoia I'm questioning everything that seems odd, here's one:

I keep a few of my own web pages on my hard-drive to use as a mini home-site. None of the pages contain anything more than straight html tags - no active components, no javascript not even CSS.

Whenever I open one of these (by setting one as a home page or by linking from one to another, IE7 and Firefox (with NoScript) both tell me that active scripts have been blocked on them.

Is this normal?

One of my concerns is that a virus could be trying to attach script to my plain old html.
