Although I'm aware of the various methods to show content only to users of a specific IE version, I was wondering if using conditional comments would have an effect on the way my site is indexed. If I choose to use conditional comments, I don't want to see something like this in Google search results:
Is this a possibility?
Please note that the above is merely an example. Another example could be marking up an entire section of the page targeted at Internet Explorer:
<!--[if IE 6]> <div> <h3>IE6 Instructions</h3> <p>To save the foobar, right click the link and select "Save as..."</p> <p>More content for IE6...</p> </div> <![endif]-->
Could this on its own ever return a result for the phrase "foobar", i.e. would this content be indexed by any relevant crawlers?
Is content inside IE conditional comments indexed by any search engines?
