MSIE6 blocks my css

P: n/a
My MSIE 6 posts a warning at the top: "To help protect...." to block
scripts and ActiveX (it says).

It is blocking my .CSS --there's no blockage if I kill the link to CSS.

What can be in a CSS file that would trigger the MSIE warning?

By the way I can see no effect of the warning -- just a nuisance at
the top of the screen and I worry about viewer's reactions.

How about a link to the problem page so we can make estimated guesses?

selector {
filter:progid...
property:expression()
}

and probably other proprietary things.

I'm sorry, now I cannot reproduce this on line. MSIE posts the warning
when I look at the local file but not for the on-line link.

I am certain the html and css files are the same, as are the images, etc.

For a moment I thought it was the @media print in css.

Then I thought it might be the use of a javascript expression to
hold the top title bar. ( There is no "script" )

Then I thought it was my attempt to embed sound -- an idea I'm
abandoning anyway. (Wish I could but it seems too problematical.)

Here's the link but my MSIE now does NOT display the warning on line !

Caution: the sound might be there !

Sound confirmed <g>

In IE7 (XP), I get this warning:
"To help protect your security, Internet Explorer has restricted this
webpage from running scripts or ActiveX controls that could access
your computer. Click here for options..."

But it's a warning with every single local html file, regardless of
what's in it. Even a simple
<html><head><title>duh</title></head><body><p>hello</p></body></html>
does it.

My IE6 on Win98 (not updated) doesn't give the warning on any page,
including a local copy of yours.
