Helps immensely! Anyone else?

*Maybe* just a bug as the implementation isn't as perfect as the IE6, 5.5 and 
5.0 browsers for IEs4Linux that I also have running side by side, and my Win 
OS partition is ancient. It's a great suite, read everything before 
installing as there are special instructions for each Linux distro. Other 
than the odd gif rendering I am seeing, the layout engine seems to be an 
exact match for Win and IE7:


About the only thing I use Windows for in the past couple years has been 
Fireworks (GIMP is too much like Photoshop for me). Still using version 3 - 
although I have the full MX suite on a Windows XP boxen upstairs my own PC 
has Win98 on the other partition, and Win98 won't do MX. The Win98 partition 
is mapped to the Linux media directory, runs great with WINE and both OS's 
work happily together at the same time when needed.
