Hey, thanks for the reply.
The thing is what if I also want to target IE8 separately also…if I use gte IE7 for one sheet and gte IE8 for another sheet…which one will IE8 use in compatability mode?
The crux of the problem is what is IE8 doing in compatability mode. If it was saying "hello web page, I am acting like I am IE7 now" there would be no problem; but it appears it is really saying "hello, I am IE8 but I am going to render things like IE7 would". Those are two completely different things. I’ve spent some time searching microsofts developer site and they go into great detail dealing with everything but I cannot find anything explaining this.
