Hello Experts -
I'm interested in finding out what method a certain site is using to render some nicely rounded corners (I'm looking to accomplish something similar on my site).  The site is http://www.prevx.com.  I have Firebug installed but am pretty new to it - nothing is jumping out at me so far on this.

Is there a straightforward means to tell how the Prevx corners are getting rounded?  I'm familiar (and struggling with) with the border-radius restrictions in IE.  Prevx is rendering smoothly in my IE8, which has me interested in their rounding technique.  Thanks for any tips on this.

- Rick

They are using css and border-radius for rounded corners.  If you are looking at using rounded corners for your site, you should check out this JQuery plugin, http://jquery.malsup.com/corner/

Thanks for the reply - I had run into multiple instances in a current project where the malsup.com plug-in wasn't working for me in IE and I guess I had just assumed that it didn't work ever in IE.  Will post a couple of those in a separate thread.
