does it support xhtml 1.1 strict? that way i can finally serve properly formatted xml, and embed svg. which means i can draw lines (finally! after 20 years i can draw lines in my webpage)

XHTML 1.1 Strict? There's only the XHTML 1.1, and no, IE8 doesn't support the application/xhtml+xml mime type.

The Microsoft Internet Explorer is not free! Not even as in Ā«gratisĀ». To be able to use MSIE natively (v7 and up), you must own a version of Microsoft Windows XP SP2 or later.


Internet Explorer is free for download and it can be freely ran on any system capable of running WINE, so cut the crap.

ACID 2 test works

Not with "my" IE8. I am not able to scroll the page neither with arrow keys nor mouse wheel. It should be allowed to do that.

You have IE7 running in WINE successfully? Do post instructions on how you managed that, since the IEs4Linux crew have never really gotten past IE6 (they've managed to create an IE6 hybrid that uses some of IE7's rendering engine, but that's it).
