IE7 {css2: auto; }

    IE7 is a JavaScript library that makes the explorer work by standards. Eliminates a lot of problems with css, makes it correctly handle translucent PNG under IE5 and IE6.

    IE7 loads and parses style sheets in a format that the explorer understands. After that, it becomes possible to use CSS2 / CSS3 functions without css hacks.

    A lightweight version of the script is included in your HTML / XML document. No change to markup or css styles is needed.

    IE7 provides Microsoft Internet Explorer support for W3C CSS and HTML standards:
