Hi,

In CSS, I forget how to make a border around a div with a box  header that has a  gradient color blue.
If the browser cant handle the gradient color then I need it to still display a color.
Can someone give me an example please.

If you are just worried about IE8 then add to the css

filter: progid:DXImageTransform.Microsoft.gradient( startColorstr='blue', endColorstr='lightblue', GradientType=0 );

Open in new window

You shouldn't need to worry about the other browsers as they tend to self update to the latest version anyway which all support CSS3

Then just add your class names and use them in the css instead of div

If you need a fallback for browser that don't support gradients just put background:blue; ahead of the gradient declarations and the browsers that can't do gradients will use the blue because they ignore the linear-gradient that they don't understand.
