Foreign Keys and Storage Engine

I have a problem: I want to check for foreign key constraint without using INNODB.
I am currently using INNODB on my computer and that works fine, but my web host doesn't support INNODB. I have tried to use MyISAM, but foreign keys does not work. I have also read that MyISAM does not support it.

I woder: How can I check for foreign keys when I'm not able to use INNODB?
I've heard that MyISAM is the standard storage engine, and think its strange that it does not allow you to use foreign keys.

Are there any other storage engines supporting foreign keys?
