An empty script element is not being recognised as legal in MSIE (it is legal by definition in xml/xhtml) so eg ≺script xxxx /≻ fails even though ≺script xxxx ≻≺/script≻ passes.
The workaround is to use a separate close tag.
The bug manifests itself as a blank page - everything after the script open element is considered by the IE parser to be contained by the script declaration.
Test page Workaround is not included
