You can build a cross compiler for the Hurd on SuSe; the same holds for
MiG.  Can you use the Debian packages?  I have no clue.

You do not need to do any cross compiling to get the hurd installed:
you will need to compile dpkg for SuSe and then leave most of the rest to
the cross-install script.

The site does not have just IE users, but also Netscape (and I imagine
most others as well).  From the page: This ``site follows the w3
consortiums standards for accesibility, and doesn't use tables for
layout . . .  I have tested with Mozilla and Lynx''

So, view the source or talk to Jeff Bailey.
