Detecting IE for my style sheet

I have a two style sheets. One for IE and one for all the other
browsers.

Now I need browser detection so I know which style sheet to load.

I understand that there is request.user_agent.

My question is what is the string I need to test for?

Thanks for your time in advance,

Mitch

Why not simply use an HTML conditional statement such as:

<!--[if IE]> IE Conditional Comment: Internet Explorer
<![endif]-->

I haven't used this before, though TextMate has it built in under
conditionals within the HTML commands. This one would actually be
better:

<!--[if !IE]><!--> IE Conditional Comment: NOT Internet Explorer
<!-- <![endif]-->

Let me know if that helps!

I’m confused… why would conditional comments prevent you from changing the font size?

Set it in the main style sheet, override it in the IE sheet.
