      Description

      IE is very sensitive to the way the BASE tag is written. This can affect correct rendering of CSS rules + javascript execution.
      See http://tacoscomponents.jot.com/BugReporter/Bug86 , http://drupal.org/node/44934 , http://mg.to/2006/04/29/your-body-is-in-your-head for more.

      In a word, IE expects the BASE tag to be rendered as <base href='...'></base> .
      We currently render it as <base href='...'/>

      The cross-browser, XHTML + HTML4 compliant solution would render:
      <base href='...'/><Unable to render embedded object: File (--[if IE]></base><) not found.[endif]-->
