In JavaScript, but not in HTML.

table.data	{	border-left : 1px #cccccc solid ;
			border-bottom : 1px #cccccc solid ; }

td.data		{	border-right : 1px #cccccc solid ;
			border-top : 1px #cccccc solid ; }

th.data		{	border-right : 1px #cccccc solid ;

These declarations are very likely to cause the crash. Netscape 4 can crash 
on any border declaration, the more so if they are in this shortcut format, 
the more so if they work on table elements. Remove these, see if it helps.

I noticed

<table cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" border="0" width="100%" 


<td colspan="9" class="BreadCrumb" style="padding:2px;">

Using inline styles in any table element is a sure way to hell in NN4. I 
advise you to remove all inline styles from table elements. It might help.

h2.home { margin-bottom : -10px ;}

Dangerous, dangerous...
