IE8 CSS Issue - Page not showing in IE8

I have an attached html file - it works in all browsers but IE8. It worked a week ago. I made no changes in the IE8 Core style sheet but I did add stuff in the master style sheet.

You can see the entire style sheets at:

Below is the HEAD code fro the index page:

<head profile="http://gmpg.org/xfn/11">

      <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8"  />

  <!--      <meta name="viewport" content="initial-scale=1.0, width=device-width"  /> -->

    <meta content="width=device-width; initial-scale=1.0; maximum-scale=1.0; user-scalable=0" name="viewport" />

      <title>Welcome to Absolute Limousine Montreal | We offer corporate limousine services.</title>

      <link rel="shortcut icon" href="favicon.ico" type="image/x-icon"  />

    <link rel="stylesheet" href="css/core.css" type="text/css"  />

    <!--[if IE 8]>

    <link rel="stylesheet" href="css/coreie8.css" type="text/css"  />

    <link rel="stylesheet" href="css/screenie8.css" type="text/css"  />

    <link href="./themes/ribbon/themeie8.css" id="this" rel="stylesheet" />


    <!--[if lt IE 9]>

    <script src="//html5shiv.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/html5.js">


    <script src="http://css3-mediaqueries-js.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/css3-mediaqueries.js">


    <link href="http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Ubuntu+Condensed|Terminal+Dosis" rel="stylesheet" />

    <link href="./themes/ribbon/theme.css" id="this" rel="stylesheet" />

    <link href="./css/screen.css" rel="stylesheet" />

    <script type="text/javascript" src="./javascripts/jquery.min.js"></script>

    <script type="text/javascript" src="./javascripts/jquery-ui.min.js"></script>

I don't think that's it.  The page never finishes loading in IE8.  I'd suggest disabling some of the javascript that is not actually being used and see if that clears it up.

Actually, you may be correct that it's a CSS issue.  I came across this:
It seems to jive with the problems you're having.  And the underlying cause seems to be a CSS syntax issue.

I am not too familiar with the newer CSS syntax, though, so hopefully someone else can help you.  It's most likely a missing/extra curly bracket or parenthesis.  Sorry I can't help further.

Missing curly brackets :-) You were right.
