Website page will not load in IE

I have a problem. I have been playing around on a basic test page tinkering with javascript and css. This page always worked in IE, and I had moved for a time to Chrome, and then Firefox. Now it does not load the page content in IE.  I ran the page through a browser validator and ironed out any major errors but I have been fiddling with HTML (frontpage / dreamweaver) for the last 15 years and I did not see anything obvious that would disable a page. GRANTED, I did not take any html classes and I do not know the proper way to code anything. I know where to put objects and where to place code to see if it appears on the page. Further than that... I know how to edit and troubleshoot until I get what I want on the page..

But I have never seen a page disappear. Now when you visit it in IE, you can source it... but beyond that I can't figure out why the rest of the page is now not showing up.

Likely.. I input some block of code that calls to some js or css sheet that somehow voids the page. But I am not sure what it could be.

the page is www.sbravo.com/test01

There is no closing </head> tag in the code
Try adding that in.
Just above this line:
<BODY BGCOLOR="#ffffff" background="images/GREENMARBLE.gif" TEXT="#000000">

a page is not load in to IE because it will not followed the some of the standard rule of the HTML , here is the solution for that

 -- Add the </head> tag before start the body , you have start the <head> but not close that so IE take the all the things in head section and that's why not load the page

for a better web promotion of yours

-- add the title currently it's blank <title> YOUR TITLE </title>

-- add the meta tag and keyword for the web promotion

hope it will worked well..

Thank you for the feedback. Odd that /head was missing. Though when I put it in, it still does not work correctly.

I titled it as well but this is merely a test page and so I don't need to bother with adding or editing the metas.

As I said I am not very familiar with how pages call css attributes, etc... Is it possible something in my current CSS file is disrupting the page?  The green marble background is showing now because I removed the code calling to the css sheet for the old counter I was testing. I believe that sheet called out the green color which overwrote the previous. It looks to be back now, but still does not load in IE.

As you can see at www.sbravo.com/green I was attempting to insert the code that produces the counter - into the test01 page, which called to css and js scripts.

I am really scratching my head. I could care less about the integrity of the test page since it will never go live. My web developer can still view this page to get a grasp of my concepts but it's just frustrating that a page fell off the grid in this way.

You are correct... It is working fine. It just took way too long to work on my browser.
