I told you so...

Shit will hit the fan: The demise of CSS hacks and bro­ken pages. Markus Mielke isn't the sharpest knive in the box, but com­pared to who he ad­dress­es he's a lightsabre. The is­sue is that when IE7 will be re­leased: "you may no­tice ma­jor sites break­ing due to the use of CSS hacks and the strict doc­type". For starters I've nev­er un­der­stood why any­one would use HTML "strict" in the wild. Us­ing strict has nev­er solved a prob­lem, only in­creased them, and you'd only want to use it fetish­ious­ly. But that alone doesn't cause the prob­lem in IE7. Only when "strict" is com­bined with hacks! What's the point of strict when com­bined with hacks? That point log­i­cal­ly doesn't ex­ist be­cause of the de­f­i­n­i­tions of "strict" and "hack". So you'd re­al­ly have to have had your <head> up your RSS for the last cou­ple of years to get into this demise.

Hav­ing nev­er re­leased any­thing in strict or with the use of hacks, I'll just en­joy my Christ­mas hol­i­day or when­ev­er the Fire­fox-killer comes out, with­out hav­ing to wor­ry about this.
