CSS ONLY 'max-width' in IE6 - No javascript and NO expressions

This is a CSS only answer to emulate 'max-width' in IE6. It also works in all modern browsers without having to use 'max-width'. There is no javascript or Microsoft expressions involved in this method. The incentive to produce a 'max-width' came from another Sitepoint quiz which has ended, so I now publish my version which overcomes some of the problems with the ones published on Sitepoint.

This version has the same 1 pixel gap problem as the centered version in IE6 due to rounding errors in calculating the 100% width of the right pad.



Coccinellidae is a family of beetles, known variously as ladybirds (British English, Australian English, South African English), ladybugs (North American English) or lady beetles (preferred by some scientists). Lesser-used names include ladyclock, lady cow, and lady fly.

They are small insects, ranging from 1 mm to 10 mm (0.04 to 0.4 inches), and are commonly yellow, orange, or scarlet with small black spots on their wing covers, with black legs, head and antennae. A very large number of species are mostly or entirely black, grey, or brown and may be difficult for non-entomologists to recognize as coccinellids (and, conversely, there are many small beetles that are easily mistaken as such, like tortoise beetles).

A few species are pests in North America and Europe, but they are generally considered useful insects as many species feed on aphids or scale insects, which are pests in gardens, agricultural fields, orchards, and similar places. The Mall of America, for instance, releases thousands of ladybugs into its indoor park as a natural means of pest control for its gardens.
