Patrick, I’ve asked on several sites what the deal with * html is. I see it as a hack which is guaranteed to target IE5.x and 6.x only, so I write clean code and use it as an override to correct bugs found in only those browsers.

And Matt, to answer your question, it means maintaining multiple stylesheets. I find it much easier to have one stylesheet where the IE corrections are right with my original style declarations (using * html).
