taken from the google code page for it
About
IE7.js is a JavaScript library to make Microsoft Internet Explorer behave like a standards-compliant browser. It fixes many HTML and CSS issues and makes transparent PNG work correctly under IE5 and IE6.

It is really sad that one has to resort to this. Libraries all the way up to IE9! I just can't understand why MS can't get their head out of their you-know-what. The company is full of bright Software Engineers so the only conclusion one can make is that they simply don't want to be compliant.

Nice find though GasJ! However, not sure I'd put much effort into supporting IE versions below 7 now. I wonder if this behaves well with jQuery.

Or you can force a newer browser to behave like an older one
Code:


meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=EmulateIE7"

All seems like a lot of hassle though and I don't why MS insist on putting it's own interpretation on markup standards, except for the fact they can because they have the most commonly used browsers (at the moment).

It gets interesting when you change the above snippet to Emulate Chrome when using IE Smile

Edited: code got stripped
