Using CSS Hacks to deal with browser inconsistencies (IE)

There are numerous approaches to deal with this quite annoying issue. One pretty common and quite practical workaround is using CSS Hacks exploiding a webbrowser's parsing bug or non-compliant 'processing'.
Special annotations in CSS-files enables to hide or display certain sections to serve up the 'correct' values to corresponding browsers.

Lines annotaded with * are processed by IE-Browsers only.
* aBox {
width: 300px;
height: 100px;

Another specific hack is defining special conditions as comments within the HTML in order to load browser's corresponding css file:
< !--[if IE] >
< link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="iehacks.css" / >
< ![endif]-- >
