ASPX compliant browser for Linux

I am trying to access a site that is using IIS with .net and is really set up for MSIE.  I have tried to access the site with Konquerer, Opera, Mozilla and Mozilla Firefox.  All display the page, but the functionality is reduced so much that I can not complete the actions that I need to complete.  I have resorted to using VMWare simply to have MSIE.  Is there a browser that will provide this compatibility or can you run IE with WINE or something?

It sounds like the site is using very IE specific JavaScript - which is a rarity these days. Getting the site owner to fix the site would probably be the best bet.

IE will run under WINE, but not easily nor well.
