How does IE handle the stacking context?

IE, up to and including version 7, always use the nearest positioned ancestor to determine the stacking context for the element in question (what happen if a parent element has position:static explicitly?). IE7 treats the value 'auto' as 0 (zero) (a new stacking context is established?).

What is the best way to deal with IE problems?

The best way to deal with these incompatibilities is to make sure that the correct layout of your page doesn't depend on them. If you use these problematical selectors and declarations not for fundamental CSS declarations but only for nice extras, you can ignore Explorer for Windows' incompatibilities. For instance, the :focus pseudo-class allows you to define a style for a focused form field. Although this extra style is nice to have, your page can do without it. Therefore you can safely use :focus and ignore Explorer Windows' lack of support.

You could use the famous Box Model Hack, or you could decide the minor differences aren't worth the trouble. Fluid thinking can solve many problems, not by hacking your way through browser incompatibilities, but by embracing a different, more web-like way of thinking.
