Barney could you expand on this?  I currently use either an IE if 
statement with the CSS in the header if it is really minimal, one or two 
lines - and if larger, an IF statement that includes an IE specific 
stylesheet, such as ie6.css.  Anything that is more efficient works for 
me, ideally I would "dump" all the IE stuff into a single stylesheet 
along with  the IF/ELSE stuff as well.  -Bob
