Commonly to target specific versions of Internet Explorer we will use conditional HTML comments to apply a specific class name to the <html> tag. With this approach it is then trivial to target a specific browser via CSS for special styling. For example:

<!--[if IE 8]> <html class="ie8"> <![endif]-->

Since Internet Explorer conditional comments have been disabled since IE10, we can no longer use the following syntax.

<!--[if IE 10]> <html class="ie10"> <![endif]-->

JavaScript to the rescue

In order not to break from the pattern of HTML specific class names for IE versioning, a JavaScript can be used to manually add a class targeting IE10.

if (navigator.userAgent.match('MSIE 10.0;')) {

Or in pure JavaScript, if you do not have jQuery available.

if (navigator.userAgent.match('MSIE 10.0;')) {
  document.querySelector('html').className += " ie10"

This is not the ideal approach. In general feature detection is a better method to tell if a feature is available but when looking to target Internet Explorer purely for CSS styling purposes this may be the most pragmatic approach.
