    As the Forefront theme doesn’t work properly in IE8 or IE7 (about 8% of my users) I’m trying to add some CSS to target those browsers specifically and tidy things up.

    A reply to my previous post (now closed) said to use this syntax:

    <!--[if IE 8]>
    your IE 8 styles here

    However, this doesn’t work. The first and last lines get stripped out leaving the CSS visible to all browsers.

    Am I missing something? Or is there another way I can do what I’m trying to do.

    Apologies – there’s a mistake in my reply in the other thread. Those IE-specific comments can only be added to HTML files, not CSS files.

    Unfortunately I can’t think of a way to target CSS for older versions of IE.

    Could you give me a specific example of something that doesn’t work properly in IE8?

    Did you still need any help with this?
