I think you have to take IE9 out of compatibility mode to see CSS3 stuff. I've not seen IE10 yet.

OK - according to the article a compatibility icon will appear if the website has issues with the browser.

According to my screnshot, this is not the case.

No compatibility view issues?

Can you post a link to the page? Which styles did you use? There are CSS3 styles that work in most all CSS3-compatible browsers. There are -moz styles that work in Firefox only. There are -webkit styles that work in Safari and Chrome only. You can use them all and the browser will ignore the ones it doesn't recognize.

Sorry for the delay. This is the first opportunity I've had to view the page in IE9. I do get the compatibility view icon in IE9 and am able to see the rounded corners in normal mode, squared corners in compatibility view mode. I don't see the gradient background image in either.

I believe you may have modified your CSS since I viewed this in Firefox and Chrome. I'm only seeing the CSS3 border-radius style now which is all you need for modern browsers. But the only gradient background image I see is a -moz-linear-gradient which is primarily supported by Firefox browsers. But the gradient does appear in Firefox, Safari, and Chrome in Windows 7.

I've attached a screen capture of what I'm seeing in IE9 in normal view mode.

I haven't modified the code.

Is there any issues with the new IE10 and CSS?

Frankly, I didn't know there was a version 10. When I go to Microsoft to download the latest version it takes me to IE9.

As I said before, the rounded corners did appear in IE9 when I was able to get to a computer with IE9. The gradient did NOT, but the only gradient I've found in your CSS is a -moz-linear-gradient which is only supported by Mozilla or Firefox browsers. Have you included any IE-compatible gradients?

Here is a good reference for CSS3 gradients which, interestingly enough, mentions IE10. There's a section titled "Trident (IE)" which has some good information about using filters for earlier versions of IE.

Thx for your anwser - I'll check tomorrow. I'm quite sure I've seen IE9 browsers handle the rounded corners I've specified in my CSS.

This answer was able to show me why CSS works as it does in IE9.
