The IEView plugin
IEView is a Miranda plugin, written by the_leech. The basic idea of the plugin is to enhance the look of the message history by giving the user the ability to use HTML- and CSS-based templates for displaying the messages of a chat conversation. It achieves this by using the Internet Explorer HTML component and dynamically build web pages from templates and the actual messages.
When IEView is active, it replaces the standard message display area in TabSRMM with its own window. TabSRMM automatically detects when the plugin is installed and activates it for all your chat windows, except group chats, which are currently not supported.
In TabSRMM, there are options to enable or disable IEView either globally or for any specific contact. This process is explained in more detail on the page about the message history.
Advantages of using IEView
Concerns about security issues
Some people have stated they want to avoid IEView, because it is using the Internet Explorer engine. However, there is not much to worry about. IEView does a very good job in filtering incoming messages before sending them to the HTML control. Basically, nothing but plain text will pass this filtering. The only possible security risk are the templates you install into IEView, because a template could, in theory, exploit security holes in IE. If unsure, only download templates from trusted sites (i.e. the Miranda file listing).
