Well the only hack I ever use is the standard box model hack, and even
then I'll only use it once or twice on any site.
I really know nothing about star hacks and underscore hacks. The whole
CSS hack thing is a bit of a mystery to me. If anybody can point me to
a good article that explains the most popular hacks, why they work and
more importantly, why you would need to use them, I'd be interested.
