Question IE7 Issues

I am having problems making the ie7 javascript properly work.
First, I was practicing just using the explorer file structure and then, when I had no success, I used Visual Web Developer and received the same result.

At first, my file setup was:
CSS > Chapter02 > multi-column.html

and my ie7 folder is at:
CSS > Chapter02 > ie7

From reading the book this far, this should work as both the ie7 folder and the html file are in the same root folder.

During testing, I'm still receiving the result on Figure 2-2 instead of Figure 2-3 using Internet Explorer 6.0.

The conditional comment lines are in the html page as instructed. Any idea why I still can't have these columns recieve the row depth the exercise is demonstrating ???

Any help on this would be greatly appreciated.

PS: I do not own your beginning CSS book but I will be purchasing both the beginning and professional versions today.

Exclamation Solution

Actually, I figured this out by looking up the creator of the Java Script code that is used throughout the book. Instead of using:

<!--[if lt IE 7]>
  <link rel='stylesheet' type='text/css' href='multi-column-ie.css' />
  <script src="/ie7/ie7-standard-p.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
I now use:

<!--[if lt IE 7]>
<script src="http://ie7-js.googlecode.com/svn/version/2.0(beta3)/IE7.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
It works perfectly but I am concerned about linking to a site that could either go down or move which would break everything. Hopefully, Dean Edwards will provide another opportunity to download his zip folder...
