Had a quick look around and cant see any threads about this so here goes...
Im finding designing pages very long-winded if i want a site to look perfect in every browser. Theres always something out of place in IE 6 or then Firefox etc, so ive been using multiple style sheets for each browser,
Im currently including CSS files for IE 5, 6, 7 and a main stylesheet for firefox and other browsers
But i cant help feeling im doing it the wrong way surely theres an easier way to get around this?
Should i explore IE hacks?
What browser versions do you include style sheets for? Do people still use IE 5!?
What is the 'proper' way of doing things?
Thanks in advance for your advice :)
IMHO the 'proper' way of doing things is to do it without hacks. I understand your situation though. It's a sad state of affairs. I usually only design for IE 6/7 and FF2.

If you study up on haslyout you won't need many if any hacks at all. If you pay attention to IE as you code - you can introduce no hacks.
