ie 7 and 8

So I attempted to add a style sheet specifically form ie 7 and 8, but for some reason it is not rendering the code.

I have removed the media queries on the stylesheet.

This it the html to the style sheet.

Thanks for any help

<!DOCTYPE html>

<html>

<head>
    <meta charset="utf-8">
    <link rel = "stylesheet" type="text/css" href="css/normalize.css" media="screen">
    <link href='http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Josefin+Slab|Merriweather' rel='stylesheet' type='text/css'>
    <link rel = "stylesheet" type="text/css" href="css/style.css" media="screen">
    <link rel = "stylesheet" type="text/css" href="css/responsive.css" media="screen">
    <!-- [if lt IE 9]><link rel="stylesheet" href="css/styles-ie8.css" type="text/css"/><![endif]-->

This is slightly off topic but ...

I wouldn't worry about IE7 because it currently has less than 1% worldwide usage.

IE8 on the other hand has 8% and is quite important to support.

Yeah I looked up the usage after this post an noticed how little it was being used.

I just with ie8 was at 1% too!

What do you mean?

I was referring to the 1% usage comment you made for ie7 and just WISHED that ie8 had the same usage. Not the 8% it is now.

Yeah I see what you mean, the word wish was missing in your sentence, I'm on the same page now.
