There are a few different ways.  One is to stick the [if IE]... block
into a scratch before the [if] block and then reference it later,
another is to put it in an include block, another is to write a small
usertag that inserts the IE-specific tags, anotehr is to rewrite your
logic so it doesn't use the [if] tag, there are loads of possibilities here.
