i just addressed the problems with this last night in a post about 
the AOL browser... i deleted that, so i'll try to cover it quickly...

- AOL requires you to sign up to use it, which means you gotta 

- you have to be prepared to test for AOL's unique traits, such as 
image re-compression and very dynamic IP assigning...

- depending on the version of AOL, you can track down the version 
of IE used as its engine... if it's pre-IE, well, you're stuck...

- if you don't want to sign up to AOL, find someone who is an AOL 
user who will allow you to use their system for testing every now 
and then...
