IE 4 and IE5.5 (I don't have IE 5 or IE 6 yet) run fair (not well) with the
standard config dll selection and the following overrides:

The issue with black icons is due to something in the native comctl32. If I
use additionally:
I will get the black icons. This started back in the summer of 2001 I think.
The builtin comctl32 displays the icons correctly. However it does have some
other problems.

Note IE is one of the main test vehicles that I use to work on rebar and
toolbar. It is a great test program. It seems to use most of the documented
interfaces for comctl32 and a lot of undocumented ones (see discussion of
the toolbar mesage 0463).
