CSS 2.1 parser in IE 7

Looks like many pages will not be broken when the CSS in IE7 is improved. So by implemented hacks that use child selectors and the * html hack to work round IE, the * html will be ignored while the child selector processed (like what other browsers do).

"We've already started talking about a few of the CSS changes that are going to be available in IE 7 when we release, but there are a few hanging points that we haven't talked about yet or haven't covered completely. There are 3 specific items I'd like to talk about:
  • Using the root node wild card selector for IE only rules (* HTML) [strict mode only fix]
  • Multi-class selectors as defined by CSS 2.1 (.floral.pastel) [strict mode only fix]
  • Pseudo-element parsing sometimes flags rules as invalid (P:first-letter{ color: red; }) [strict/quirks mode fix]"
