HTML5 Clive and CSSquirrel
Written and illustrated by Jonathan Ingram
IE6 is trying to escape detection by putting on a cloaking device, which essentially is an IE6 conditional tag.
IE6: Ha ha, no-one will find me with this invisible cloak.
Meanwhile in a location nearby, CSSquirrel and HTML5 Clive are in the middle of a discussion.
CSSquirrel: HTML5 Clive we have a problem. IE6 has escaped and no-one can find him.
HTML5 Clive: Have no fear my furry friend.
HTML5 Clive pulls out his mobile phone.
HTML5 Clive: By using this new iPhone4 with iOS 5 Mobile Safari, I can use the Compass API to locate his position.
CSSquirrel: Is that a plug?
HTML5 Clive: No don’t be silly, I’m completely impartial to all mobile devices.
CSSquirrel: No I mean is that a plug?
CSSquirrel points towards a wall-mounted power plug socket, which has a device plugged into it with the title IE6 written on it.
HTML5 Clive: Oh yes you’re right. I suppose we better switch off his power source then.
It looks like our heroes have saved the day but it seems CSSquirrel’s financial demands have dampened the mood.
HTML5 Clive: Hmm I didn’t realise you were so expensive CSSquirrel.
HTML5 Clive is left open-mouthed as he reads through CSSquirrel’s contract.
CSSquirrel: My contract states I mustn’t appear on any more than three comic panels. Plus solving IE6 issues will cost you more.
