This week's book giveaway is in the OCMJEA forum. We're giving away four copies of OCM Java EE 6 Enterprise Architect Exam Guide and have Paul Allen & Joseph Bambara on-line! See this thread for details.
Woah that site has a lot of scripting. Anyway IE is croaking on line 73. But that's line 73 counting all the lines for the external script files includes so it's a bit hard to say. As a guess I would say somewhere in the dimensions function. However it seems to be calling it recursively whatever it is and that's what causes the lockup.
I would recommend putting all the source embedded into the HTML for starters. That will at least help in getting the actual line number of the error and then going from there.
But again from what I can tell there is some code that in IE not only causes an error but seems to make it cycle endlessly. Which is why it locks up. So another idea is to find any for loop or while loop or recursive function and make sure that it breaks out if a condition that you are counting on changing in your code could break upon failure. Maybe just a simple counter and if the function or loop gets called x times just return right out.

Yes the scripting sort of grew to quite a large size (though you should see the size of the HTML.....)
Anyway, you inspired me to do some more investigating, and I found that the problem was with the line:
