Target IE6 and IE7 Browsers without Conditional Comments

 / Published in: CSS


The code below will change the background-color of divs depending on what browser the user is viewing the web page under. Since * cascades down to IE7 and below, we use _ after that declaration so that IE6 (and below) has a different background color from IE7.

  1. div {
  2. background-color: #999; /* all browsers */
  3. *background-color: #ccc; /* add a * before the property - IE7 and below */
  4. _background-color: #000; /* add a _ before the property - IE6 and below */
  5. }
