Print Preview crashes IE

P: n/a
I've racked my brains, dissected the code and scoured the news groups,
but I can see nothing giving any indication of why this might be
happening.

1. Go to http://www.arkive.org
2. Click on "Species"
3. Click on "British chapter"
4. Click on "Mammals"
5. Click on "Brown Hare"
6. You may need to scroll a tiny bit, but now click on "[ More
Information ]"

On this page using IE (I'm using IE6.0), choose Print Preview from the
File menu. You get a generic windows "There is an error with ..."
message, and IE closes down.

I've tidied the page offline to remove surplus tags, but to no avail.
I'm pretty certain it's a stylesheet problem, but I have no idea what
:(

Any help or suggestions very gratefully received!!

Thanks,

Martin

It's not a stylesheet problem, it's an Internet Explorer problem. No
stylesheet should be able to make a browser crash. Run Windows Update and
install everything you can. If that doesn't fix the problem, report the
bug to Microsoft.

If you really must have a workaround, and you suspect the stylesheet, remove
parts of the stylesheet at a time, until the crash goes away. The last bit
you take out is the "problem code", so try and find a way of replacing that
code.

I once made a valid stylesheet that when loaded in a certain browser
(IE 5 or was it 4.5 ?) could crash the operating system (Mac OS 9).
I'm not going to reveal the details.

I clicked on everything I could see but nothing happened. You don't seem
to have any links on that page at all?
