> Hi,
> in our old (pre-JSF2) product version we use some IE conditional comments to insert IE
specific stylesheets:
> <h:outputText
>   value="&lt;!--[if IE 9]&gt;&lt;link rel=&quot;stylesheet&quot;
type=&quot;text/css&quot; href=&quot;/path/to/someIE9.css&quot;/&gt;&lt;![endif]--&gt;"
>   escape="false" />
> But now I want to use <h:outputStylesheet />. (So that the stylesheets are registered
at the view root.)
> My researches in the Internet gave me a solution used by other frameworks: surround the
HTML root tag with conditional comments an give them IE version specific classes:
> <!--[if lt IE 7 ]><html xmlns="" lang="de" class="ie
> <!--[if IE 7 ]><html xmlns="" lang="de" class="ie
> <!--[if IE 8 ]><html xmlns="" lang="de" class="ie
> <!--[if IE 9 ]><html xmlns="" lang="de" class="ie
> <!--[if (gt IE 9)|!(IE)]><!--><html xmlns=""
> so we can have style definitions like:
> .ie8 .someOtherClass {...}
> I attached a patch of the Document to support an attribute which causes the DocumentRenderer
to render these conditional comments on the HTML root tag.
> May it be reasonable to Tomahawk to support this?
