Home Forums CSS Declaring Double Widths/Heights Re: Declaring Double Widths/Heights


That is a hack for IE6 it is used to feed Internet Explorer 6 and below special property values that are ignored by other browsers. In this case the height and width with !important will be ignored by IE6 which will use the second declared width and height. The other browsers will use the !important width and ignore the second one.
