I am looking for a very short coded sniffer which only detects:
== version 5.0 or > version 5.0
version 6.0 detection etc not necessary
I already snif for browser / os , but i do not want the version snif implemented within it, just separate.
The shorter the better!
Thanks for your effort,

The following should work as a sniifer for IE5 and later.
ie5plus = document.getElementById && document.all

Sorry Roy, I didn't explane well what I want, my mistake!
I like to have a routine like:
if(version == 5.0)
else // (version > 5.0) //

I made a line myself which seems to work in IE 5.0, although the code is longer the expected...
Can somebody test it using IE 5.5 or higher
document.write("You use IE 5.0");
else //should be IE 5.5 +
document.write("You use IE 5.5 or higher");
Thanks in advance,

your checking for ie5 is correct. but you can't just say that it's ie5.5+ in the else statement. It might be ie4 or netscape or other browsers.

Thanks for replying,
I do have a secure sniffer for os / browser / version which only continue to show the site when os == win, browser == ie, version >= 5.0.
For one layout-problem (DIV over (not above but over) IFRAME) I need to detect if the IE version == 5.0 (DIV over IFRAME not possible because of z-index not supported) or >= 5.5 (z-index for IFRAMES supported)
Can you test of the code works with IE 5.5 + , I use IE 5.0 (I think I am the only one in this forum not using state of the art technology)

Most, most interesting, I am directly going to implement this!
Thanks for Your effort,
