Thanks, Dan has said he agrees with it from a development perspective
and ies4linux already lets enough people do it for free so adding it
to winetricks should not hurt major corporate contributors like
CodeWeavers too much. He just wants me to strip it down and clean it
up as you suggested and I am working on it. I just have a few other
minor projects to finish out first and hope to get back to it in a
week or two.

I believe they are all optional. It just looks like crap rendering a
lot of sites without them. I'll remove them and leave it up to someone
else to submit patches and bug reports regarding them.

I don't recall now, I'll retest.

And totally undocumented save a few obscure references to Unicode text
rendering of certain Asian locale symbols and equations I found in the
richedit specs. Also I don't think its really needed, I suspect if a
third party would reverse and document it for us, we could get by on
just stubbing and returning something sane...unless your trying to
rendering some sort of Japanesse math problem rather than standard

I think I can strip this down also.

Great! I'll do that

I think its both. There needs to be a way to trigger a fake reboot so
IE can register its dlls but I don't think they are getting added to
the RunOnce key. I'll need to look in to this a bit more also. For
siome reason wineboot was not working for me and I just ripped the
solution that appdb had.

Hmm what would be the proper command line? I am not that great at
shell scripting and just ripped that example out of appdb.
