Hi Helle, hi Anna Belle,

I just had another look: The culprit is the style element in the head. 
It starts with an HTML comment which isn’t closed anywhere.

The parser in IE9 and below is a bit stupid and reads the rest of the 
document as commented out.

As that is a technique to hide style sections from Browsers like 
Netscape 3, we don’t need comments around styles anymore in 2014. 
We’re good if we just delete the beginning <!--.

Best, Eric
