How the Conditional Comments (the name for the '[if lte IE 6] ...
[endif]' stuff) are working, is explained by Microsoft in a MSDN page:
* About Conditional Comments
.... though their examples could be a bit updated:
* test :: Microsoft's IE CC information :-)

But for the fullest use of CSS a kind of "bug destroying language" :-)
is developed, which is no language at all, but a series of hacks and
