New way to style for IE 6

Just discover that we can specify style for ie 6 using: _myclass syntax.
For all modern browsers, it will think that this is incorrect syntax and will ignore it entirly; However, for old browser, such as IE 6, it intelligently think this is a typo, and assume it to be myclass.
More Info in: Underscore hack for CSS and IE

Other way to style IE 6 is through conditional commenting or using syntax like myclass[class] which only regonize by modern browser.

Extjs AUTO complete of combo box

Here is and example to make a auto complement combo box in Ext JS. 3 important factors keep in mind here:
1. I am using jsonstore and set mode to local
2. jsonstore should set autoload to "true"
3. Set triggerAction to "all" in the combo box config

{ xtype:'combo', id: 'shoutoutsTags',
fieldLabel: 'Tag',
value: '',
mode: 'local',
width: 200,
store: new Ext.data.JsonStore({
url: 'get_data.php',
fields: ['id', 'name'],
root: 'tags',
autoLoad: true
displayField: 'name',
valueField: 'id',
forceSelection: true,
triggerAction: 'all',

hiddenName: 'mytag' //dont put it the same name as name filed value
