[WSG] cross-browser or vendor-specific CSS

2012-06-29 Thread Kevin Erickson
Hi, I am asking if anyone uses  http://ecsstender.org/ to write CSS
cross-browser code or, if not, what are you using to write CSS
cross-browser or vendor-specific code?
Many thanks!

Kevin

I do not use this. I rely on progressive enhancement. If IE has square
corners instead of round, for example, so be it. It's ok. It doesn't
render the content inaccessible.

I do, however, use http://selectivizr.com/ to make my life easier as
it allows the use of advanced selectors which saves some extra fussing
and extra markup for old browsers.

Short answer - I don't even try to make all browsers act alike. :)

Start with a simple design for mobile and old browsers. Add advanced CSS
inside @media queries or qualified by :root. Enhance IE 7 and 8 if you need
to with rules governed by conditional comments.

This is my version of progressive enhancement. YMMV.

Looking at the documentation for eCSStender suggests to me there's going to
be a severe performance hit on page load. I hope I'm wrong.

In HTML, :root is functionally equivalent to html. Not supported by IE
prior to version 9, so a rule like this:

:root .thumbs .figure { display: inline-block; }

...would be ignored by old IE.
