[h-e-w] w32-shell-execute for IE?

I'm extending the browse-url function I use so that it can select a specific 
to use based on the URL. (While I prefer Firefox, unfortunately there are many 
which use IE specific features or incorrect HTML which renders OK in IE but not
in Firefox.)

I use

    (w32-shell-execute "open" url)

to open a URL via my "default" URL protocol handler (Firefox).
I can launch IE via 

(defvar win32-internet-explorer "C:\\Program Files\\Internet 
  "*Location of Internet Explorer")

  (start-process "Internet Explorer" nil win32-internet-explorer url))

but I'd like to know if there is a shell command to open a URL (via DDE) if
IE is already running, that is, is there something like

    (w32-shell-execute "open-in-ie" url)

that I can use even though my default browser if Firefox?

(btw, I have the IE Browse extension for Firefox, but it's not perfect.)
