javascript freezing IE

I have a javascript that works most of the time but not all! When it does not work it simply freezes IE. I tested with IE 5, 5.5 and 6. The script behaves the same way with all these browsers.
Any idea why this may happen?

Can you post some code?
Javascript is a weird beast, I've seen scripts that could bring down a computer when run in Netscape but worked perfectly fine when run in IE...

I agree. Here's the link:
