  As is usual with wine this turns out to be an inadequate install.
  I went to http://wiki.winehq.org/winetricks and installed

  I ran winetricks and installed IE7. I'm frankly impressed with
  winetricks itself but the result is the same as wine itself. IE
  runs without javascript support. In the past I have had javascript
  (jscript) for IE running properly from Win4Lin and from crossover.

  Unfortunatley, Wine starts up a 'crippled' version of IE that does not
  support javascript. This is just not what web developers like
  myself and many others are looking for. The winetricks install is
  the same problem.
  It is worth it to me to shell out a few extra bucks to use
  crossover, but wouldn't it be just great if wine could give me an
  IE that actually supports javascript? Perhaps I have missed
  something here, but I recall earlier that I was told as much on
  this list not to expect a fully functional IE from wine.
