Hi. I'm a freelance web developer based in Los Angeles. Front-end where my knowledge is deepest, but I also know my way around the LAMP stack. I use and can develop themes for WordPress. Lately, I've been getting to know Liquid, used to build Shopify and NationBuilder themes and getting familiar with Python.

I used to work for Opera, as part of its Developer Relations team. Before that, I built front ends and LAMP applications for Armchair (and still do freelance development for them from time-to-time).

Once upon a time, I co-authored a book Jump Start HTML5 for SitePoint. You may also have read my articles at Dev.Opera and SitePoint.

@boundaryfunctions This is why Jonathan's solution is a good one: it avoids that pitfall.

So -- for posterity's sake -- is using this technique on the body element safe, or should it only be used as you've done it above? (Balancing extra HTTP request vs not, until HTTP/2 makes this a moot point :-).)

Conditional comments is the best way. An alternative, if you'd like to serve IE8 specific CSS, without loading another style sheet is to use conditional comments round the html tag instead: <!-- [if IE 8]><html class="ie8"><![endif]-->. Use the IE8-specific class as part of the selector, e.g.: .ie8 .primary (thanks Paul Irish)
