While conditional comments have gotten a lot of play, I’ve now switched to using them on the BODY tag to set a class.
This has two benefits:
1) One fewer http request (sometimes two if you have ie6.css and ie.css)
2) You get to keep your CSS in a single location and not split up similar rules in multiple files
