Overcoming IE's 4096 selector limit using the CssSplitter gem

There is an annoying CSS limit in IE versions 9 and below, which leads to all CSS selectors beyond the 4095th to be ignored. Due to Sass (–> more selectors) and the asset pipeline (–> bigger stylesheets) this is especially a problem in the Rails world. This blogpost gives a little bit of background on the issue and introduces the CssSplitter gem, which helps Rails developers to split up their overweight stylesheets for IE compatibility.
