Obviously (I hope! :) this should have suggested that the code will be
hidden from IE7. but IE6 will see it just fine, as will IE 5.5 and 5.0
(I believe, need to check the docs to be certain which conditional
syntax would allow these browsers to see it as well). But in any other
browse it will simply be seen as a comment.
Setting this portion aside, I am now intrigued to hear about what it is
you are attempting, and how you are proposing to solve this. I think I
originally assumed too much as to what it seemed to be you were trying

I seem to remember you stating something to the effect if not doing

If you are going to go the
system-property route then visit http://www.jenitennison.com/ , click

to locate the URI to the stylesheet, you can then access this
styelsheet and see how she has elequently used the extended system
property info made available as part of the MSXML processor to
determined browser version.
No, she determines the version of MSXML, not the browser version.
Its an interesting site implementation, thanks for the link anyway.Sure.
