I have an application which uses masterpages to style multiple aspx files. I had the following
at the top of the masterpage:

<Meta HTTP-EQUIV="MSThemeCompatible" CONTENT="Yes">  

..thinking it would style any buttons with the windows XP theme running on the machine.
But this hasn't worked.
Wondering if anyone could help.

Thanks
M.

What browser(s)?  MSThemeCompatible only works on IE 6+.

I'm running it in IE7.
Is there an issue with themes in ContentPlaceHolders?

Fixed the problem. There was an INPUT sytle defined in one of the style sheets that was overriding the XP themes for buttons. Oops.
