Nailing custard to the wall

I have recently installed IE7, a compliance patch developed by Dean Edwards that takes heroic measures to fix all the holes in the CSS support of Internet Explorer 5 & 6 on Windows. It uses CSS and Javascript to force IE into more compliant behaviour, and reduces the need for ugly style sheet hacks that have been used to get round the flaws in Microsoft’s hideous but ubiquitous browser.

If you are security concious, don’t worry. The patch requires no action from the user, and doesn’t install or change anything in IE itself. If you are paranoid and have Javascript disabled, then the site will work as normal, but the appearance might be a bit wonky in places.
