Subject [jira] Commented: (ADFFACES-206) CSS 2 composite selector is not supported in MSIE 6

Jeanne Waldman commented on ADFFACES-206:

This is some more background on the IE6 problem:
>From my tests, I've concluded that IE6 interprets composite selectors as, "Oh, they forgot
the comma".

If you type this:

.foo.p_AFDisabled {font-size:18pt; font-style:italic} 

In IE6, the above definition does not work as expected "class has 'foo AND p_AFDisabled'",

instead it works as if you typed: 

.foo, .p_AFDisabled {font-size:18pt; font-style:italic; color:pink} 
.bar, .p_AFDisabled {background-color:red; color:purple

So... . ALL style class definitions that contain p_AFDisabled will look like this:
.p_AFDisabled{font-size:18pt; font-style:italic; background-color:red; color:purple} 
/* color:purple instead of pink because in CSS, the last selector definition wins (regardless
of browser)*/

However, the skinning engine uses those for states mainly. For example, af|component:myState
will be parsed to .af_component.p_AFMyState in the generated CSS and the renderer will add
both classes on the component.
> MSIE 6 only evaluate the latest class in the classe list when evaluating composite selector
which has very bad results for some component.
