IE6/IE7 are tough browsers to fix any UI related issues. You need to understand few hacks to solve those issues. Refer http://www.webdevout.net/css-hacks for more details.

A Java/.NET developer (not a core UI developer) may not have thorough idea on following css attributes. Knowing them makes your life easy in case if you are fixing any related UI issues.

Opacity, z-index, float, position

.modal-overlay {
opacity:0.85;
filter: alpha(opacity = 50);
-moz-opacity: 0.5;
overflow:hidden;
cursor:pointer;
position:absolute;
z-index:102;
background:transparent url(‘/close-button.png’) no-repeat scroll right top;
}

IE uses filter attribute and skips opacity attribute & other browsers skips filter.
