We'll see. The css-d discussion list has had a lot of discussion about 
(and heavy testing of) IE8 when it comes to rendering standard's 
compliant HTML and CSS, I think their discussion wiki has a page about 
it. They've also been feeding back their results to MS, so perhaps IE8 
will emerge finally as a functional browser. ;-)

That's the only way to do it. Although I personally have never 
encountered a bank site that used ActiveX. And NONE of our various 
credit card sites use ActiveX or even Java.
