DescriptionInternet Explorer's implementation of web standards has never exactly been the best, and so it's often necessary to use CSS hacks to ensure that sites display consistently and correctly.
Internet Explorer 7 supposedly fixed many of the CSS bugs present in earlier versions; unfortuantely, whilst it has fixed some CSS issues, others remain (and new ones have been introduced). To make matters worse, several of the common CSS hacks used in IE 6 and below now no longer work - the most obvious being the star-HTML hack.
As such, writing workarounds for Internet Explorer has become more complex. This plugin makes a standardised approach to IE workarounds simple and consistent to implement in Rails.
ie_specific is an opinionated plugin, with certain workflow prerequisites, but the trade-off for this is consistency and simplicity.
