The CSS Anarchist Strikes Again!
Subject:   IE6 equivalent

This article got me thinking, so I figured out how to do the equivalent in IE6 (which still doesn't support the more powerful CSS2 selectors).

I made a css file (contents below), and reference it with IE6's Accessibility/"Format documents using my style sheet".

display:expression(parseInt(this.offsetWidth)==468 || parseInt(this.currentStyle.width)==468 || (this.src && this.src.indexOf('http\:\/\/ad')==0) ? 'none' : '');

It hides any culprits 468 wide, or with an "http://ad..." url. I think it should work on IE5+ too, but it's called something other than "Accessibility" there.

It also works great with the hosts file ad-block approach (which saves bandwidth, unlike this), just hiding the ugly broken ads.

    Thanks for the tip - I'm a Firebird user, but still have to use IE for various websites with lousy coding. This makes my IE use a little less frustrating!
