Internet Explorer Stylesheet Limit

December 21 2009

Did you know that IE ignores all style tags after the first 30 requests?

This had me scratching my head last week as I couldn’t fathom out why certain styles weren’t being applied to a lightbox in Internet Explorer, but were working just fine in all other browsers.

I figure IE inconsistencies like the double margin bug, png fix and z-index issue all to be common knowledge amongst web developers and designers. But why not this one? Surely the repercussions of this have more of a profound effect on a website?
