Internet Explorer frustrates the living hell out of me. Event though IE 7 is finally out, it doesn’t mean that IE 6 can be ignored. I really look forward to the day when my CSS(cascading style sheet) files aren’t full of unnecessary classes and hacks because the major browser vendors got it right and because everyone has casted away the garbage. Until then, I am still in search of tricks to simplifying my life.
One of these tricks is to make IE pretend like it knows how to use the
:hover pseudo-class on all tags.
If you have ever tried to do a suckerfish dropdown then you have gone through the same thing: excitement as you have learned how to use structural markup to create a dropdown and then frustration as your work has been nullified by IE. The fix involves creating duplicate selectors of those using
:hover, but instead of using
:hover, replace it with a class name
