Subject [jira] [Created] (TOMAHAWK-1630) Render conditional comments for IE at the html tag
Date Fri, 29 Jun 2012 10:07:44 GMT
dennis hoersch created TOMAHAWK-1630:

             Summary: Render conditional comments for IE at the html tag
                 Key: TOMAHAWK-1630
             Project: MyFaces Tomahawk
          Issue Type: Improvement
    Affects Versions: 1.1.11
         Environment: MyFaces 2.1.6, Tomahawk20 1.1.11
            Reporter: dennis hoersch
         Attachments:,, patch_Document.txt, patch_DocumentRenderer.txt


in our old (pre-JSF2) product version we use some IE conditional comments to insert IE specific

  value="&lt;!--[if IE 9]&gt;&lt;link rel=&quot;stylesheet&quot; type=&quot;text/css&quot;
  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 ie7"><![endif]-->
<!--[if IE 8 ]><html xmlns="" lang="de" class="ie ie8"><![endif]-->
<!--[if IE 9 ]><html xmlns="" lang="de" class="ie ie9"><![endif]-->
<!--[if (gt IE 9)|!(IE)]><!--><html xmlns="" lang="de"><!--<![endif]-->

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?
