User-Agent:       
Build Identifier: various

The HTML in the page above causes mozilla to go to 99% CPU utilization.  
It happens with mozilla 1.3 on linux (slackware) and 1.6 on win2k. As I recall 
it was also happening in 1.5 on win2k. 
I tried to make the code snippet as small as possible to demonstrate the bug.  
Hope this helps. 

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Use the top command in linux or the task manager in window 
2. Visit the page 
3. Witness the high CPU usage. 
Actual Results:  
The mozilla executable will consume all available CPU cycles.

No problem at all with 1.7a in winXP, Mozilla uses 0% CPU with that page.
No undue cpu usage with a current trunk linux build...

I got a CPU spike from it on OS/2 trunk, but very brief.
