Hi Joe and Welcome! 8)

Its shame I have to say no go for your first question. Basically the IE 6 browser in CE should be called “IE6 lite” because its missing a lot.

Microsoft played with MS Java in CE briefly however then Sun sued Microsoft and MS could not longer licence Java. Sun so far have not supported java on CE.

There were some early versions of Flash tried for CE but no recent ones.

So here is whats missing in CE IE:

– Java
– ActiveX
– Flash
– Shockwave

Quite a list! Really the CE browser is only useful for basic html with a few readers (PDF, Word etc)

Sorry I can’t help more on this – unfortunately CE does not enjoy the wide developer support of Linux and Windows NT,
