    are you still using old safe css html?

    Ok , something i cant my head around /

    if you were a freelancer and a client asked a website i think you normally should provide support from IE 8 +

    So you want to use the latest tech offcourse .. bummer alle those new css propertys aren't supported by the old IE8 or IE9 . how do you guys handle this ? Is kind of frustating read a book about css3 and more then 50% of it is for the trash can?

    Is there a simple overview somewhere where i can see IE8 => supported CSS ,HTML tags
    IE9 => supported CSS , HTML tags

    Conditional statements are only recognized by IE browsers...

    design your CSS for "standards compliant" browsers, then use conditional statements to adjust and fix CSS to work in IE...

    if the CSS styling is difficult to adjust ... I create a completely seperate CSS sheet just for IE, the use conditional statements to load it.

    Similar to WZ, but I don't worry quite as much about IE8. I'll still use a conditional stylesheet for IE8 (along with the HTML5 shiv and/or CSS3PIE, which will give you support for a lot of the CSS3 stuff you're looking for), but I don't worry quite as much abou tit.

    A lot of IE8 users are Windows XP users, which means that the "market share" (I hate that term for a free product) will drop significantly as people are forced to migrate away from it by April 8. So that means that it will drop and continue to drop. I'm only noticing between 5-10% usage of IE8 now (less than 1% in IE7), so while it's still enough to be concerned about for now it'll probably fade away in the not-to-distant future.

    Take a look at modernizr, it helps a lot with this and conditionals Modernizr: the feature detection library for HTML5/CSS3
