Every web-developer on the planet, is waiting for the day we don’t have to do anything for IE6. Nevermind creating scaled back versions for it, I’m talking about the day we don’t even think about.
Wouldn’t that be great.
Heres a quick list of the kind of simple CSS selecters we’d finally get to use;
div > p – A little one to start with, but how useful. > matches only elements that are the direct children of the parent,
p.bill ~ p.ben – If .bill is before .ben then the rule is true. Not the same as ‘+’.
div[aria-live=assertive] – Useful for more than just for input elements. and if you can find a use for them, advanced attribute selectors allow you to part match stings,
div.big.red – Sure you can often get away with using these right now, but little risky no?
display:inline-block – IE6 lets you do this on inline elements, but being able to put these on a div cuts down those ‘floating’ headaches. Use with a liberal dash of -moz-inline-box or -moz-inline-block in FF2.
The day IE6 is dead can’t come soon enough
