I am by no means well acquainted with IE binary behaviours, but it's not 
the first time I hear of that kind of problem. I think that what it 
boils down ot is the fact that IE is not an XML app by any measure, so 
that when the Adobe plugin tries to find firegrad1 using an XML DOM it 
somehow fails. There are probably workarounds for this problem on 
Adobe's side (though they may be clunky), I'm not sure if there are any 
pleaseant ones on your side. You may consider using entities, or some 
Javascript to inline the gradient.
