Boxy : Facebook like dialog/overlay box

Boxy is a flexible, Facebook-style dialog box for jQuery with support for dragging and size tweening. It differs from other overlays I’ve seen by providing an object interface to control dialogs after they’ve been created. And for simple usage scenarios, boxy also provides a jQuery plugin for automatically hooking up links and forms, as well as an ask() helper for presenting multiple choices to the user.

How To Create Stylesheet only for IE

Sometimes it is better to create alternate css files for different browsers (esp. IE), than using hacks. It is important in big projects, when client requires the site to be fully cross-browser. The basic technique to attach an IE-Only stylesheet is using the HEAD section conditions:

CSS FILE LOADED FOR BROWSERS OTHER THAN Internet Explorer:

<![if !IE]>
<link rel=“stylesheet” type=“text/css” href=“NOT-IE.css” />
<![endif]>


 IE 6 ONLY CSS FILE:
<!??[if IE 6]>
<link rel=”stylesheet” type=”text/css” href=”IE-6-SPECIFIC.css” />
<![endif]??>

IE 5 ONLY:

<!??[if IE 5]>

<link rel=”stylesheet” type=”text/css” href=”IE-5-SPECIFIC.css” />
<![endif]??>

IE 5.5 ONLY:

<!??[if IE 5.5000]>

<link rel=”stylesheet” type=”text/css” href=”IE-55-SPECIFIC.css” />
<![endif]??>

VERSION OF IE VERSION 6 OR LOWER: (I find this one pretty handy)

<!??[if lt IE 7]>

<link rel=“stylesheet” type=“text/css” href=“IE-6-OR-LOWER-SPECIFIC.css” />
<![endif]??>

IE 7 ONLY:

<!??[if IE 7]>
<link rel=“stylesheet” type=”text/css” href=“ie7.css” />
<![endif]??>

The biggest advantage of using this methos is that it passess W3C validation and you don’t have a mess of different hacks in your css code.
