In Microsoft Internet Explorer, when you try to run a program (script) to parse or insert HTML, the script and Internet Explorer may unexpectedly close (crash).


This behavior may occur if the script contains a certain tag without the same closing tag, or if the script contains the IHTMLTxtRange::pasteHTML function.
