Some of you probably know how annoying it can be to maintain a website that (also) has to work with IE. 

Not only is it a hassle to make webpages work right in that old piece of ****, it's also not straightforward how to test the pages in IE if you want to avoid installing Windows.

Today I came across a nice script that does all the work to get IE6 (optionally 5.5 and 5 as well) up and running on Linux.

Prerequisites are a recent wine, cabextract and wget. I tried it on Kubuntu 6.06 ("Dapper") and it worked right away.

I thought it might be interesting for some of you. Here is the project's website:
