UPDATE June 18, 2009:
There are no problems running the Real English lessons in IE6 that I can see, as long as you install Java and Flash, and then reboot.
I set up a dual boot system on my computer and I am running IE 6 (6.00.290.5512) in XP, in order to get to the bottom of this "problem", which doesn't seem problematic at all.
Teachers - please post here if you are using IE 6 and still have problems!

Hello Internet Explorer 6 Users,
Boy, do I need your help! I regularly test Real English lessons with Internet Explorer 8 on my Windows Vista computer, and with Internet Explorer 7 on my Windows XP computer, and I also test the lessons with Forefox 3, the new Opera, Safari, and Google Chrome on both computers, but I have no way to test on IE 5 or 6, since the swell guys at Windows won't let you go "backwards" to install a previous version for testing purposes.
I discovered IE Tester which allows you to test your pages on all versions of Internet Explorer, but there's a hitch: it can't handle Java, so it's useless to me.
All Real English lessons include a java applet for recording your voice online (so that students can compare their pronunciation to the teacher's pronunciation, or to the people in the videos).
So I need help. If you use IE 6, can you test a lesson for me?
If you can, it's a good idea to go to a lesson which includes all objects:
video - audio - record/compare java applet - pictures - and the exercises which also use java. There are many lessons which include all these elements, for example Lesson 29.
Does everything work? I sure would like to know!
