Hi Lorrie,

Yes, this is a known Netscape bug (the page itself
is valid HTML). One solution is to disable style 
styles (and/or scripts) for that page.

I haven't heard from Netscape about why the
page is causing the browser to crash, so I
haven't altered the HTML spec to avoid it.

I'm sorry for the inconvenience. I'd like to publish
a revision of the spec in December, and will have
a fix by then.

Thank you,

 - Ian
