No rounded corners in IE8

“Where are the rounded corners in IE?”

Question:


Just trying Universal CSS Navigation Menu for the first time - I've tried two or three of the included styles so far but have noticed IE8 doesn't display the rounded corners - they display in Firefox ok.

Is there something else I need to do or is this normal?

Answer:


Indeed there are no rounded corners in IE8 - this is because IE does not support the CSS3 standard.

See techblog.procurios.nl/k/n618/news/view/33224/14863/Testing-Internet-Explorer-8-CSS3-for-Web-Design.html

We decided not to go for any hacks as those make the page really heavy, and just follow the standards.

The same is also valid for DMXzone itself - all our rounded corners are CSS3 only - so you won't have rounded corners in IE. It is not that bad.

Microsoft promise they will comply fully to CSS3 in IE9
