Hi James,

    Good idea.  How?  "winetricks ie7" is broken.  Ie7 won't
start.  And, ie7 does work with Crossover, but won't work on
https sites (the Crossover folks did verify this for me).

Do you know any tricks to getting ie7 to both start and work
with https sites?


p.s.  Good idea not to use IE for anything or Windows
for that matter.  But, some idiot sites still will not
work with anything other than IE.  It is sad.

p.s.s the site in question does not block ei6 (I asked
them).   The site has a lot of really crappy code.
