    I tried entering

    Code:
    javascript:document.body.innerHTML="<html><form><input type crash></form></html>"
    into the address bar of IE but it just displayed a single-line input. Firefox rendered it too, which I found pretty gross...

    this was probably fixed a long time ago :P

    Nah, sabotage is counterproductive; a double edged sword.

    I tried putting it in frontpage and even though I doubt FP XP would have crashed because it probably uses the same rendering engine as IE6 SP2, Norton AV certainly took offense to it (see attachment) and refused to allow me to preview the page.

    Trojan.CrashIE documentation from Norton AV: http://securityresponse.symantec.com...n.crashie.html

    Oddly enough, when frontpage added a 'size="20"' attribute to it without my telling it to, nothing happened

    Isn't it interesting how virus scanners have moved from the domain of physical executable files to include scanning of markup as well.
