IE6 CSS Fixer v0.95: starter kit

Welcome to the IE6 CSS Fixer: starter kit page. A tool specifically designed to ease the pain of the ie6 css debugger. If you want to read up on all the specifics, I advise you to check the articles on the ideology, the specific fixes and the scope of this tool.

It is extremely important to note that this tool is not a miracle solution. This is not a 1-click-fix-all tool, nor is this a final version that will work flawlessy. In some circumstances it can even introduce new errors, so keep that in mind when you add one of the potentially harmfull fixes. Also know that it does not output clean, lean and optimized css code.

This tool was concieved to decrease the monkey work when starting an ie6 css fix file. It applies a series of basic fixes that are known to conquer many problems and cause as little harm as possible. It is meant to get a good head-start by fixing roughly 40-60% of all your ie6 issues with just one click, outputting a rough css that can be placed in a separate section and can be used as a solid start to finish up the rest of your ie6 debugging work.

Even though the status of this tool is still experimental, it has already proven its worth. All additional feedback and help is welcomed.
