Hi -

I would like to change the border color of the fieldset without loosing the rounded corner look. It seems that if I add "border-color: Blue;" to my style in IE 6-7 I loose the rounded corners.
<style type="text/css">
fieldset {    
   -moz-border-radius-bottomleft:7px;   
   -moz-border-radius-bottomright:7px;   
   -moz-border-radius-topleft:5px;   
   -moz-border-radius-topright:7px; 
   -khtml-border-radius:5px;
   -msie-border-radius:5px;
    border-radius: 5px;         
    -webkit-border-radius: 5px;
    border-color: Blue;
    
} 
</style>

i dont think with IE we can change the border-color and still get the rounded corners.

That's because border-radius function is CSS3 not CSS2. IE doesn't support that only Firefox, Safari/Webkit and Opera. You have to do it with some Photoshopping and normal CSS or you can go the Javascript way.

I think I know how to keep the look but have the border color come out blue. If you could provide a test page for me so I don't have to implement my own page to solve the problem that would help me.
