Master CSS file for smart hack management (See related posts)

Using various hack management techniques publicized by Doug Bowman and Molly Holzschlag, this is the default stylesheet I to in the head of my markup:

        [CLIENT] screen master
@import url("core.css");

/* Import WinIEx-only bugs - hide from Mac IE5 \*/
@import url("");
/* END hide from Mac IE5 */

/*       Import Win IE5x hacks

@media tty {
        i{content:"\";/*" "*/}} @import ''; /*";}
}/* */

/*       Import Mac IE5 hacks

@import url("hacks.mac.ie5.css");

The core.css file contains my pure, "hack free" CSS. The other files referenced above contain any and all browser-specific hackery required to make IElesser browsers behave properly.

Aloha - thanks for this.

I've possibly done something wrong but I wanted to alert you that whilst using this code verbatim, Safari 2 imported the IEx styles.

If i'm a fool, apologies. If I bring bad news, apologies again :)

I've found that in order for the IE5/Mac import hack to work, it needs to be listed before the IE5 and IE5.5 hacks.
