RE: How big is the danger of IE?

I'm trying to understand if your issue you are implying sarcastically in
your last statement is with pulling similar functionality out of single
programs and putting it into DLLs or that MS offers products to do many
different things or that you can seamlessly work with documents across
applications thereby more easily putting them together (instead of saying
building a spreadsheet in excel working on formatting it, print it separate,
then take a word doc and print it separate and then collate the sheets
together). 


  Thanks, joe

i didn't know IE also displays e-mails and power point files.

It doesn't. But the IE rendering engine (read: dlls) are used by most MS
programs to render HTML, which can be embedded into almost any document
type. Pretty much any IE exploit will work in any of these programs as well.
Isn't the whole "integrated Microsoft suite" a wonderful concept?
