strangely, when i created a new account on my workstation, and loaded up my site using many Fieldset tags in IE it showed them with Rounded corners - yet on my Admin account which I've optimized everything possible, something has turned IE's rendering of Rounded Corner Fieldsets OFF

Does anyone know what effects this?
Is there a way to FORCE IE to render Fieldset with rounded corners?

I used the FF CSS tag, and that worked well - is there an equiv for IE ?


Anyone?

I've had a bit  of a play and it looks like changing the style attributes has an unexpected result. I've found that if I play with the backgound color or the border in any way then it reverts to square corners. Maybe it just can do the calcs with rounded corners.

i figured this one out before the holiday -

yes, it has to do with the "Visual Effects" settings of WindowsXP...
i normally turn all that stuff off to ensure the machine is running in an optimized mode....

The specific setting is the the Last Box - "Use Visual Syles on Windows and Buttons" - this turns ON and OFF the rounded corner rendering of WindowsXP' rendition of Rounded Fieldsets.

Wow, - If someone presents a notion that is against the grain of EE, they audit you like the IRS, and look for problems they can pin violations on. Real impressive to see grown-ups acting like children.

EE is quickly becoming extremely distasteful due to actions of these "Moderators"
