HTML5 and CSS3 bring some great new elements to web development. These modern standards let web developers add new interface features and improve their application’s overall look and feel.
There’s just one problem: Many people still use old browsers, which don’t recognize modern standards. Unfortunately, web developers cannot control their user’s choice of browser.
So, what can web developers do? HTML5 and CSS3 hold so many opportunities, but aren’t supported by older browsers. Should developers just ignore these new standards until the use of older browsers dies out?
Thankfully, there are ways around this problem. One such way is with the use of conditional style sheets, which let developers create separate styles for old browsers. How can you use conditional style sheets in your web applications? We’ve written up a short tutorial, which you can find right here.
