IE7

I’ve been sitting on Dean Edwards’ incredible set of enhancements for Internet Explorer since last Wednesday. As you may be aware, word of his IE7 development is sweeping across the community, and it’s not surprising why. With a few lines of script, Edwards has found a way for Internet Explorer 5.5 and 6 to support complex CSS selectors.

The work is still in progress, and has opened up a world of opportunity for CSS authors. Nevertheless, I’m left wondering why Microsoft can’t build this same functionality into the browser’s own code?
