    Two-faced Janus

    I'm working in I.E. 5.5 and the user interface has a menu with the usual commands: File, Edit, View, Favorites, Tools, Help and toolbar buttons such as Back, Forward, Stop, Refresh, Home, Search, Favorites, History, Mail, Print, Edit, Discuss but when I open the following page: http://www.microsoft.com/office/evaluation...fo/WebCmpnt.doc, the menu changes into a Word-like menu containing commands such as Insert, Format, Table and toolbar buttons such as Tools which adds Word's formatting toolbar to I.E.'s interface.
    I love it! But the problem is that for any URL other than the aforementioned, menu and toolbar revert to the normal ones. What can I do in order to keep the Word-like menu and toolbar as a default for all URL's?

    If you notice that URL, it ends in .DOC. That means that it is actuially a Word document, and Word is used to open it and that merges its menues into IE's. Those extra menu items don't make much sense for web pages that are not Word documents.
