It's Not Magic, It's Work!

08 Jun 2004


This week while ranting about how awful Microsoft's Internet Explorer is a browser when compared with something modern like Mozilla or Opera, someone suggested Dean Edwards' "IE7" compliance patch for IE5/6.

Basically on your web-server you have the patch which you specify as your first style sheet. You then design your site to the specifications, and test with modern browsers, and you should find that IE 5 and 6 pretty much do the right thing too, without having to hack all sorts of work-arounds into your xhtml and css!

I've not used it much yet, but it could solve some problems on some work Intranet projects, and on some low profile web sites (like this one).
