Root node wild card selector for IE only rules

Justin Rogers wrote a post on IEBlog about improving the CSS 2.1 strict parser for IE 7. IE 7 skips * html selectors in strict mode. I wonder what happens if you use the “comment before doctype” hack to get IE 6 in quirks mode.

<!-- IE6 in quirks -->
<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/strict.dtd">

I anticipate that IE 7 will render in strict mode using the above hack.

Update: Using this hack will cause IE 7 to render in quirks mode according to John A. Bilicki.
