CSS hash hack and testing

As alluded to in the previous post, you can prefix a CSS property with a hash and Internet Explorer will still process that property, in contravention of the CSS specification. This may be an easy way of showing CSS to IE and hiding it from more compliant browsers. I’ve drawn up a test page — please visit it, because you can select whether your browser is compliant or not and we can get a good list of compliant and non-compliant browsers, and it means that I don’t have to test it on everything in the world. :-)


I'm currently available for hire, to help you plan, architect, and build new systems, and for technical writing and articles. You can take a look at some projects I've worked on and some of my writing. If you'd like to talk about your upcoming project, do get in touch.
