 Using IE8 is a nice suggestion and we wish everyone would but the reality
 is that not everyone can upgrade, remember BP suggests corporate use,
 intranets? for many large orgs upgrading browsers on a network is not a
 trivial matter as they have apps written for older browsers, some orgs
 have stated that upgrading will NOT happen - Orange & MOD procurement in
 the UK.

 The approach that has been deemed 'Best Practice' for a while now and
 acknowledged by MS is to use MS Conditional Comments to filter a IE-
 fixes.css sheet to IE only, this way you do not need any other browser
 detection methods.

 In that sheet one places override rules and the use of zoom:1; is a
 standard practice to set hasLayout - validation of this sheet is a non
 issue and irrelevant.

 BP could do with adding a CC stylesheet to header.php or users could add
 through a add action wp_head in functions.php and corrections added to
 that rather than adding 'hacks' to the proper styles, 'hacks' are pretty
 much redundant and many have consequences; relying on a bug to correct an
 issue is dangerous as the bug could be corrected at a later revision.
