Does the monastery have any browser numbers? If the IE numbers are low (and I sure hope they are), a link to google chrome frame is all you need.
I have done some asking around about PerlMonks stats but so far I have found nothing. In terms of chrome frame the markup I have does use it.
<meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=edge,chrome=1">
That meta tag tells IE browsers to do 2 things. First if chrome frame is installed then use it to render this page instead of IE. If that fails IE will use the newest rendering mode it has based on version (IE 7 using strict instead of IE6 quirks mode for example).
