    media selectors and ie 8 for windows

    I am beginning to question whether IE 8 for windows recognizes media selectors, e.g.,

    the standard downlevel revealed conditional:
    Code:
    <![if gte IE 8]>
    <link rel="stylesheet"
          type="text/css"
          media="screen and (min-width:40em)"
          href="css/macOS.css"
          title="default" />
    <![endif]>
    I have also tried:

    an adaptation of the above so the page would validate:
    Code:
    <!--[if gte IE 8]><!-->
    <link rel="stylesheet"
          type="text/css"
          media="screen and (min-width:40em)"
          href="css/macOS.css"
          title="default" />
    <!--<![endif]-->
    I have also in a test case, just incorporated the raw link without any IE conditional.

    In these 3 cases, this link is definitely not accessed. Note that for other Windows browsers and all Mac browsers, the link is successful.

    This link talks about a special meta tag in the header; I have incorporated it, with still no success.

    What am I doing wrong?

    Thanks in advance,

    Never mind .. I found the answer here. It states "The following CSS3 media query properties are supported in Internet Explorer 9 Beta" and it goes on to list width.

    What a bummer.
