With Internet Explorer 8, in Sites 11.1.1.6.1, in the Contributor UI, in an asset's 'Body' CKEditor attribute, embed included a template which rendered an HTML form tag in the field.

After save, and on inspection of this asset again, it displays a blank page, and this javascript error occurs. This only happens in IE8.  FF and Chrome shows the asset correctly.
