Cool tip, but I think I'll wait for the movie. I never trust M$ Betas to begin with let alone an Internet Explorer Beta.

Well it works :D

This is good for webmasters trying to get a jump on a more compliant IE, I suppose.

So far it renders my personal website better than IE6. IE6 did weird things to my navigation.

I have this method running on a couple of machines. No problems thus far.
