Starting with 5.5 IE SP 3 or so IE does not support the Netscape plugin 
architecture anymore.
For IE you need the template outlined at the end of this email (you can 
combine this with the embed template you are using now to support both 
variants). The "src" parameter needs a URL to the project you are trying 
to load. You can also have squeakland generate the launching page for 
you by linking to
http://www.squeakalpha.org/project.jsp?<url of project goes here>

(The line above may be wrapped by your mail reader).
