CSS hacks and Internet Explorer 7

To follow up on the CSS frustrations for IE 6 post: Here is the way to go about dealing with hacking CSS for IE 7 and all its likely quirks with CSS: Easy CSS hacks for IE7

I really wish I won’t have any use for it, but I fear I will be using it a lot in the years to come.

Internet Explorer 6 and CSS frustrations

Right now I am working on the “2006 edition” of tryggogsikker.no – a site that has been live since 2002 and has markup that should make my stomack turn – if I wasn’t so used to it by now.

So now its all XHTML and CSS. And with that its all CSS-frustrations, especially with Internet Explorer.

But Jensa knows how to cheer me up. Check out this gem (for however long it stays):

http://connect.microsoft.com/Styles/GeneralStyles.css

/* fix for the IE 1px-off margin error */

* html .StupidIEMarginHack { margin-right: 1px; }

* html .StupidIEWidthHack { width: 100%; }

Quite briliant, especially when you consider the source. But still a bit redundant for all of us that has had to struggle with IE and its terrible handeling of CSS. Lets hope IE 7 will do a LOT better.
