More on CSS Hacks

Wow, it’s nice to see the folks at positioniseverything endorsing the demise of CSS hacks in IE7.

Second to useragent string detection issues, CSS hacks that used to work in IE6 but no longer work in IE7 (due to CSS fixes) will probably be the most common cause of compatibility issues for IE7, and will cause some short-term pain to existing sites that use the hacks. The long term benefits of having IE support more of CSS for new site development, however, are large. Thanks to p.i.e. for keeping sight of this important point.
