Special Notes

This filter is commonly used along with Tantek's Box Model Hack to apply the correct box model values to Opera 5 (though, Opera 5 understands the TBMH so this reason doesn't hold) and to prevent Win IE 5.0 from ignoring the rule after the Tantek hack (which is a valid problem). When used in this way, it is sometimes called the "be nice to Opera 5" rule. See Tantek's original Box Model Hack page for more information.
