    Yes. If not you have to stay after class and write on the chalkboard.

    just found this:

    Flaw found in new Microsoft browser

    An Internet Explorer 7 flaw, found just hours after the browser's launch, could result in sensitive data such as your internet banking details falling into the hands of criminals, says Danish security firm Secunia.

    "A vulnerability has been discovered in Internet Explorer, which can be exploited by malicious people to disclose potentially sensitive information," says an advisory published on the Secunia website.

    "The vulnerability is caused due to an error in the handling of redirections for URLs ... This can be exploited to access documents served from another web site," the advisory reads.

    The flaw enables attackers to steal user information that's being entered on a separate website, just as long as the user is visiting a site exploiting the flaw in another window.

    It is understood that one possible scenario entails attackers leading users to an infected website, hoping that they will at the same time login to an online bank account. Should this occur, the attacker would be able to hijack the user's username and password.

    But Thomas Kristensen, Secunia's chief technology officer, told CSOnline.com that "it is hard to exploit the flaw because it requires the attacker to lure someone to a malicious site, and for the attacker to know what other secure site the visitor might simultaneously have open".

    Last year Secunia found the same flaw in Internet Explorer 6, but it remains unpatched by Microsoft.

    Until the flaw is patched, Secunia says an alternative solution is to "disable active scripting support". Details on how to do this can be found on Microsoft's website here.

    Internet Explorer 7 was officially released by Microsoft yesterday, and is sent through to users as an automatic security update. Users have the option of whether or not to install it on their computer.

    Microsoft has not made any official comment on the discovery.
    not going to use it unless microsoft solves the problem.
    Failure: Failure is the dress rehearsal for success.

    Statistics: The only science that enables different
    experts using the same figures to draw different conclusions.

    Okay.. uh.. Two questions learningAlways.

    1. Did you read any of this thread or just skip over it?
    2. What browser do you use with 0 current problems?

    Does anyone know if IE7 is ok with *html hacks (and other hacks to get earlier IE versions to work) ?

    You should not use the star hack with IE7. Use conditional comments instead.

    IE 7 will ignore the star selector hack. And as Doc said, if you need to target older versions of Internet Explorer, use a conditional comment instead.

    At the risk of appearing extremely ignorant, can you give me an idea of how to do the conditional comments? Does this require javascript and, if so, does it have an impact on SEO?

    It doesn't require JavaScript at all. It's a proprietary Microsoft HTML comment that only gets read by IE 5 and higher.

    To target IE 5, 5.5 and 6 (but not 7), just do this:
    HTML Code:
    <!--[if lt IE 7]>
    HTML code goes here
    <![endif]-->
    For IE in general, just remove lt and 7 from the opening comment tag. If you want to target just one version of IE then remove lt from the tag.
    HTML Code:
    <!--[if IE]>
    HTML code goes here - this will target any version of IE that understands conditional comments
    <![endif]-->
    HTML Code:
    <!--[if IE 6]>
    HTML code goes here - this will target only Internet Explorer 6
    <![endif]-->
    I typically put my conditional comment in the HEAD section, and then feed a custom stylesheet (containing only hacks, behaviors and filters) to IE 5, 5.5 and 6. Here's what it looks like:
    HTML Code:
    <!--[if lt IE 7]>
    <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="iefix.css" media="screen" />
    <![endif]-->
    And if done properly (like to give IE 5x and 6 a separate stylesheet) this will have no effect on SEO.

    And to think I saw your IE7 and earlier hacks thread after I posted this too... you might want to update it with a link to my post to show that it's been answered .
