  • Google JS library for IE5 and IE6

    Hope this hasn't been posted here before...

    I don't know if anyone has done this yet, but the coders at Google have come up with a Javascript library that will load in IE5 and IE6 to make them CSS standards-compliant. There is even a module to add the enhanced IE8 functionality (extended CSS parameters) to IE7.

    I can think of a few places I'll use this, maybe in some of the Wordpress themes I've worked on. I do know I've spent hours troubleshooting CSS layout in IE6 when a page appears fine in all the other browsers out there.

    The idea is clever, but I'm curious to try it out and see if it really works as advertised. If it does, I'll gladly use it.

    BTW, the HTML code that IE recognizes will load this JS ONLY if the parameters are met. Therefore, there will be no performance hit for everyone else who uses Firefox, Safari, Chrome, Opera, etc.

    <!--[if lt IE 7]>
    <script src="" type="text/javascript"></script>
