I got the style preferences to work under IE6. I still don't know why it was crashing, though. The fix is a bit of a kludge.
Was bored this morning, so I went to church. They altered the prayers of the people. The new version:
We pray that our leaders may govern with humility,
that they not be full of selfish ambition or conceit...
The old version (form I):
For our President, for the leaders of the nations,
and for all in authority, let us pray to the Lord.
Lord, have mercy.
I'm not sure what to make of the change. I think somebody's saying that our leaders are more evil today and that we no longer want the Lord to have mercy for them.
