Visual Studio design view applying unwanted conditional comment CSS content

I have a conditional comment block in my master page that includes a CSS <link> intended to apply fixes to IE6 and lower.

<!--[if lt IE 7]> <link href="/css/iefix.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" media="all" /> <![endif]-->

However, those CSS classes are applied in design view even though my browser is IE8.  This really messes up the design view.  Anyone know how to keep the Visual Studio designer from applying unwanted CSS within conditional comments?

(Visual Studio 2008 Professional Edition)

Thank you for your help.

The design view of VS is very limited. It easily messes things up and when doing a proper design you should look as less as possible to the design view and only in your browser. In short; You can't fix it in 2008.

Maybe that it has become better in VS2010, they supposed to have improved the designer there.
