I'm taking a language course that requires the students to use IE only.
IE4Linux is too old and won't work with the program...
Is it possible to install IE8 from the microsoft website by running it with Wine?
If so, is it possible to install ActiveX components later on?

I think IE in general is a tricky thing, looking at the wine AppDB is quite telling:

This site will disguise your firefox to make the site think you are running IE.
