    I recently had this same issue. At the time I was modifying the Page.ss template. I was trying to remove the SearchForm. When I deleted the line from the template, I started getting the same error as you in IE (Firefox worked just fine). Oddly I found that if I just commented this line out instead of deleting it, it worked.

    Since then I discovered that using a html and css validator is your best friend when dealing with these kinds of issues. The web developer extension to Firefox has a validator, but because of my company's firewall it can't see the website. I just do a view source and copy and paste it into the validator at www.w3c.org and it was finding all kinds of errors (improperly closed tags and comments, etc). Forgetting a ; at the end of a line can cause all kinds of problems for some browsers too. I can't recommend validating your html and css enough.
