There's a launch mode -- can't remember the name or number -- that
writes out a temporary .html page, and then launches it via the shell.

That's a pretty simple way of handling these kinds of things. I'd like
to make it possible to configure which browser .exe the user wants to
use, in association with the temporary-page launch, but I haven't
figured it out just yet.

There's also the problem with IE's security features; depending on
where from a page is launched, it may get the lockdown restrictions,
and the browser will run in a cramped mode.
