This article advocates using “html >” to target most non-IE browsers, instead of ”* html” to target IE 6-. It’s no worse, but is it any better? I’ll need a better reason than “because tantek says so” to banish * html from my code.

It’s simple. It works. Why change it?

PS: “Why not use coditional comments?” Because I’d have to clutter up every page of my site with them, rather than keeping all my if-this-browser-do-this code in one place.
