Browser Specific CSS

Description

The Browser Specific CSS plugin is a tool that allows developers to easily target different browsers straight from the stylesheet. Browser Specific CSS adds a short javascript to the head of your page that enables you to use browser specific css selectors. For example, targeting Internet Explorer 7 from your stylesheet is just a matter of defining styles with a “.ie7” selector. Every major browser is supported including code for targeting Macs, PCs, and Linux operating systems.

This plugin uses the javascript written by Rafael Lima. No changes have been made to his code, and all the credit goes to him. Thanks, Rafael!
