ok, here's my problem.
I want to use the
BODY {overflow: scroll; overflow-x: hidden;}
BODY { scrollbar-face-color: black;
scrollbar-shadow-color: navy;
scrollbar-highlight-color: red;
scrollbar-3dlight-color: green;
scrollbar-track-color: black;
scrollbar-arrow-color: yellow;}

kind of tags in my website, and I have for a while. I found out early on that that made my site netscape incompatable, but I didn't know why.
Just yesterday, I found out that it was because that tag isn't true CSS, but a non-standard quirk found only in internet explorer.

When I try to hide the tag from netscape using the <!-- tag, I either end up making netscape view correctly, but erase the scrollbar coloring in IE, or I keep my original bug.
So here's my question:
Is there any tag (HTML, XHTML, Java, CSS, or otherwise) that will hide the quirk from netscape, but still let it be displayed in IE?

Oh, I need to get offline now. Please just e-mail and PM me if there is a way.

problem hiding IE quirk from netscape

As long as you are using IE proprietary code you might as well
use "Conditional Comments" to give them only to IE. Google
conditional comments for info.
