    You can specify conditional comments to different versions of IE.

    The problem with conditional comments is that they are not really pure CSS code, but markup comments only readable by Microsoft browsers, so they must be OUT of your style (.css) files and INTO your html files, loosing therefore the capability to be cached by the browser, one of the best advantages of CSS coding. Microsoft browsers will have to refresh styles, so your page display will be slower.

    Through this point of view, hacks are better than propietary conditional statements.

    PS: Sorry for deviating the thread. To apologize let me paste some good CSS links

    Get some style on your forms

    The best is to avoid hacks but sometimes you have to use them.
    Remember faulty css-code also takes time to render.
    And you are more prone to odd behavior when adding more hacks

    By using condtional comments like this:
    Code:
    <!--[if IE]>
    	<link rel="stylesheet" href="styleIE.css" type="text/css" media="screen" />
    <![endif]-->
    You still get the benefit of caching, and you get a seperate css file for IE. By removing the filterhacks from the cssfiles you make them more readable and easier to maintain.
