What future UAs does the Star hack target? I’m sure the IE7 team specifically said they’re removing it. Therefore I see it as valid as the child selector “work-around”.

The IE team said conditional elements as the best way of targetting that browser, why not use them? We can easily target any version we want?

I don’t think removing or changing these hacks will affect how IE7 handles, IF the browser supports what they say it will.

If they fix the CSS support so it’s more like Firefox or Safari, then remove the hacks, then 1) it won’t get the hack rules 2) it’ll correctly apply the correct rules. And everyone is happy.

Saying that, though, is a big IF. Conditional elements are “officially” supported by IE, so why not use them. My ownly arguement is that it requires extra MARKUP…
