Internet Explorer lets me down

Most web page makers know that Internet Explorer is a pain in the butt. IE hasn't been updated in a long time, and its support for CSS2 is not very good. Every other major browser such as Opera (my personal preference), Firefox, and KHTML-based Safari (Mac) and Konquerer (Linux/KDE) has better support for standards than IE. Of course, none are perfect, but all are better than IE.

Here's a ridiculous list of IE bugs that some internet ninja has compiled, to back me up. I'm not just hatin'.

I'm not gonna cater to one buggy outdated browser, so instead I found a neat feature (found via this page) in IE that makes it easy for me to put in HTML that only IE users will see without me resorting to server-side tricks. If you're using IE, you're seeing it right now. The rest of you can look at the page source or something.

Ignore this block if you somehow can see it. It's a hack to force the 'yieldbox' div to be as wide as the viewport allows, even if the content isn't wide.
