Is it possible to add styles which would only be shown in older versions of Internet Explorer?

    Thanks for your advise , I got him to clear his cache and the form now works on his computer.

    The problem seems to be on older versions of explorer, the form formatting does not work because the form collapse bars are designed to be blue the white text does not show when the bars appear light gray

    This only appears to be a problem on older versions of explorer, and as we like the design of the form as it is we are reluctant to change it, but there are a lot of customers out there with older computers using explorer, is it possible to add a dark out line to the text?

    Yes, this can be accomplished with a CSS hack which, according to my information, exclusively targets Internet Explorer versions 7, 8, 9 and 10. Add the following rule to the end of the form's injected CSS:

    .form-collapse-mid {
     color: #000\9;

    This will change the color of the text, not add an outline to it. You can use whatever color you wish by changing the #000 (black). It's the \9 that targets the aforementioned versions of IE. Due to its non-standard format, all other browsers will ignore the declaration.

    If you would like further help with this, we'd be glad to provide it.
