Hi Experts,
I am trying to make a webpage with gradient background.  I need  it to be cross browser compatible.
The gradient seems to work all other browsers except IE 8. I know that microsoft changed it in IE8. i tried adding -ms-filter prefix but does not work.
I need to figure this out immediately.  Please help.

This snippet should work:

But unless you are running your website in quirksmode it won't work.

<style>
	#gradient-with-stop {
		color: #fff;
		height: 100px;
		padding: 10px;
		/* For WebKit (Safari, Google Chrome etc) */
		background: -webkit-gradient(linear, left top, right top, from(#00f), to(#fff), color-stop(0.7, #fff));
		/* For Mozilla/Gecko (Firefox etc) */
		background: -moz-linear-gradient(left top, #00f, #fff 70%);
		/* For Internet Explorer 5.5 - 7 */
		filter: progid:DXImageTransform.Microsoft.gradient(startColorStr=#FF0000FF, endColorStr=#FFFFFFFF, GradientType=1);
		/* For Internet Explorer 8 */
		-ms-filter: "progid:DXImageTransform.Microsoft.gradient(startColorstr=#FF0000FF, endColorstr=#FFFFFFFF, GradientType=1)";
	}
</style>

<div id="gradient-with-stop">
	Gradient
</div>
