I had this problem recently. It seemed to me that this problem was due to
the fact that I had a <script> element that called a function defined in an
external file. The in-file javascript called the function before it was
fully loaded, triggering this specific error in IE6.

The solution for me was to add a defer attribute to that <script> element.
So, in your case, it would be:

<!-- Page-specific script -->
<script type="text/javascript" defer="defer">
