Making IE 7 look like IE 6 to get around website restrictions

I just picked this up via Rory Street and although I haven’t tried it, it certainly looks interesting for those who are having problems accessing websites which check the browser version when using the Internet Explorer (IE) 7.0 beta

Mark Harrison has a post on his blog which talks about changing the IE7 user agent string so that websites think you are using IE6 (a tip from the IEBlog). He also has links to scripts to switch the associated registry setting.
