Hacks and Filters - Need to Know

So far I’ve been able to get by without using hacks and filters but as a CSS designer its important (!important) to have an idea what to do it if at the end of a long struggle you can’t get a target browser to fall into line. After all, what do you do - pull out your WYSIWYG and make a dodgey copy and supply that? God forbid!

So, although they are to be avoided and only used as a last resort, no CSS coder of any standing could go without the knowledge of what these innocuous little excerpts of code do and some idea as to why. A good starting place is this article, Intro to CSS Hacks over at Sitepoint. For more hardcore hacks and filters information there’s no place like css-discuss.
