Add support of Dean Edward's IE7.js script as an option for customized journals.
Short, concise description of the idea
The IE7.js file predates Internet Explorer 7 by a large margin, and allows earlier versions of Internet Explorer to mostly handle advanced CSS effects correctly.
Full description of the idea
The homepage for the script in question is:
It has extensive documentation and examples available, and only requires (at a minimum) a single .js file be included in pages, either all or only those served to Internet Explorer 5.0, 5.5, or 6.0 under Windows.
- Allows IE5-IE6 to much more fully support CSS, including advances effects commonly requested in styles, and also including modern graphics-file formats like transparent PNG files.
- Easy to only include if requested, can be made a switchable setting on a per-journal basis for those journals customized in such a way as to benefit from the script.
- Slows the client-side page rendering fractionally when the script is first loaded and it runs through and 'corrects' all the HTML code automagically to work much closer to spec.
- Adds to the download size initially to fetch the .js file.
