#23: Conditional Stylesheets

Internet Explorer provides a way to target CSS styling information specifically for its different versions. These "conditional stylesheets" are the best way to handle CSS problems that pop up with your page in IE. They aren't "hacks" (which are liable to cause problems with new browsers down the road), they are perfectly valid code. Just be careful not to overdo it and make things more complicated for yourself.

Posting Code

We highly encourage you to post problematic HTML/CSS/JavaScript over on CodePen and include the link in your post. It's much easier to see, understand, and help with when you do that.

Markdown is supported, so you can write inline code like `<div>this</div>` or multiline blocks of code in in triple backtick fences like this:

  function example() {
    element.innerHTML = "<div>code</div>";

There's a whole bunch of content on CSS-Tricks.
