OmniWeb Browser Identity

Does anyone know how I can make OmniWeb identify itself as IE to web pages that request it? The default is to emulate Netscape but I want to change it to IE. Any tips? The option is in the Java Script prefs but you have to manually enter the info so I'm stuck.

My Intenet Explorer reveals's its "USER_AGENT" as:
Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 5.1b1; Mac_PowerPC)
I did a Google search and ended up at http://www.mozilla.org/docs/web-developer/sniffer/browser_type.html, but I'm sure there are a ton of other resources.

Also, and I don't totally understand this, there seems to be a difference between the JavaScript user agent reported by OmniWEb, and the "real" USER_AGENT variable sent in the HTTP header streams...
