My first CSS site and it causes IE to CRASH!
Internet Explorer has encountered a problem and needs to close

I've built my first site using CSS, and all seemed to be going well. But I've obviously done something wrong because it actually crashes IE!

I'm not sure what the rules are on posting urls here, so please correct me if I'm doing something wrong, but the site in question is www.meanandgreen.com

If you load up the homepage and then repeatedly click on the logo link on the top-right of the page, or the "home" link just below it, then usually within 6 or 7 times, IE will throw up an error and completely shut down.

Could someone tell me what I've done wrong?

Curiously, I've just run the site on my local machine as localhost and the error doesn't occur.

Yeah they'll snip that, review the TOS.

First validate your code, then see what's up. It may not be the CSS.

Then, cut all the CSS code except one element. One by one, re-add them until it crashes again.

Sometimes a funky crash can be not a single thing but a combination of elements together. Since you said "needs to close" and not "unexpectedly quit" I know you're not on a Mac, but there are all sorts of unexpected combos that wil do this on a Mac.

Ah, turns out it was a bit of javascript I put in the page. I was checking the screen resolution of the client and displaying a "this site might not look quite right" message if they were on 800x600.

Oh well, I've removed it now, they'll just have to figure out for themselves why the site doesn't look quite right.
