New IE security behavior in XP-SP2

I have come upon a few links to details of how security enhancements work in IE now.

Changes to Functionality in MS Windows XP Service Pack 2 - Pt 5: Enhanced Browsing Security It discusses a number of topics, including zones, pop-up blocking, etc. from the point of view of web page developers.

Also there are a few articles of interest (apparently from the IE team, as mentioned on their blog) under the heading "HTML and DHTML Overviews and Tutorials" at MSDN:

About Windows Restrictions outlines the restrictions around controlling windows in XP SP2.
About the Pop-up Blocker does the same for the Pop-up Blocker.

A comments also linked to this good resource for IE registry keys at the Registry Guide for Windows. In particular it lists 23 or so security related registry keys.
