I'm currently using the template.php file to load a page specific javascript file as part of my theme. Because some of the idiosyncrasies with how Internet Explorer v7 and v8 handle some jQuery issues, I have to add a different .js file for users visiting with those browsers. How would I incorporate that into the following code sample?

function themename_preprocess_page(&$variables) {

$path = drupal_get_path_alias($_GET['q']);

if ($path == 'page/pg1') {
if ($path == 'page/pg2') {
if ($path == 'page/pg3') {

Generally, it goes along the lines of:

$user_agent = $_SERVER['HTTP_USER_AGENT'];
if (strpos($user_agent, 'MSIE 6.0')) {

This requires some knowledge of what common user-agent strings look like; to save time on research, you can download some decent theme that is known to handle different CSS/js for different browsers and search its code for HTTP_USER_AGENT.
