Conditional Comments And Hacks RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi, when using a fieldset tag with legend you cannot style it with a border radius as in other browsers, it just stays square.
    To overcome this I've set a conditional comment for some extra bit of css to use in IE9.
    In your wisdom you've dropped conditional comments in IE10 because it's your most 'standards compliant browser ever' so I've had to use a jquery hack to target IE10 to achieve my rounded corners, can you believe it, your shiny new browser and I'm having to use a hack already.
    This was obviously overlooked in 9 and still in 10, how about 11?

    My point is this, why do I have to use hacks and conditional comments, can you not just make it so everything 'works' as in Firefox, Chrome etc.

  • Hi,

    we don't work for MS..... there are already feedback and issue tickets for border-radius on feildset elements at http://connect.microsoft.com/ie

    posting to forums goes nowhere.... clicking the Me to links at connect highlights developer preferences to the IE Team who have to triage issues.

    bugzilla.org is a similar issue tracking forum.
