CSS specifications for IE7

Not that I’m a fan of The Eagles, but this awaited list from the IE team simply “could be heaven or this could be hell”. Markus Mielke recently published the list we have all been waiting for: CSS details for IE7.

In short, large parts of CSS 2.1 has been implemented, including alpha transparency support for png (finally) and more. They have also got rid of several infamous hacks along the way. Things are really looking good, even though there are some strange behavior here and there.

As we’ve known for a while, Microsoft will make an automatic delivery of IE7.

In short: To sites that use CSS hacks, this is armageddon. I once again urge web professionals to review their weapon arsenal and test their sites in IE7. Now. Why not download the RC 1 version of IE7 today? When you have, the quick reference sheet could be handy.

Box model hack, I bid thee farewell. You will be remembered by few and missed by none.
