    Internet Explorer I have an IE9 problem that I don't quite understand

    Hi!

    I'm having an issue with some CSS and IE9 in on particular part of this page and it's just not jumping off at me!

    If you go here http://ftscv3.handlersspot.net/_index.php and about 1/3 down the page on the right you'll see 'field status.' I'm sure once you see that with IE9 you'll understand what I'm talking about.

    I'm pretty sure I'll be ok with IE10 but I can't have IE10 since I'm running a Vista x64 box. Got no trinkets to buy a new box or get Windows 7. IE is the only thing holding me back .. IE exception processing I call it! Just because they don't want to play by the rules the rest of the world has to deal with!

    Hope somebody can help! I appreciate the effort!

    Regards!

    Dave

    If you go to Virtual Machine (VM), Windows Virtual PC & Browserstack | Modern.IE you can get copies of IE10 and IE11 to test with that will run on any operating system.

    Don't forget to start your JavaScript code with "use strict"; which makes it easier to find errors in your code.

    I'm not sure I'd blame IE quite yet... you have 50 errors in the code, many of which are missing tags. IE tends to not like code errors, so it wouldn't surprise me if fixing these solves the problem.

    Essh! Dummy me! I fixed those and IE9 still doesn't like what I have there. I don't think it's the border-radius, I think it's the box-shadow inset. Although from what I've read IE9 can render those without problem. Guess not. \=

    My CSS is validation is as good as it gets. With all the vendor specific css the validation tends to choke on things. I found only 3 problems in there and they didn't make much difference.

    Hopefully now you can see that is going on!

    I presume you're talking about the gradient fill escaping beyond the rounded corners (I don't have IE9, so I'm guessing a bit here). Good discussion of options at css3 - IE9 border-radius and background gradient bleeding - Stack Overflow

    You would be correct! I was afraid of that. Matter of fact IE10 could not produce it correctly either. I hate exception processing, loathe it! It's just as easy to just come up with a plain jane approach on this one.

    Thanks for your eyes!

    That's curious. I do have IE10 your site looks identical to my Firefox (FF28) display, i.e. all looks fine.

    I am doing curved corners and gradients on sites, and to my knowledge they are ok on IE9 too, but as I say, I don't have it to test on. I NEVER use the exception processing, not really sure why you would use it. Build it so that it degrades nicely as features don't exist, I say. You aren't testing for old versions of other browsers, so why do it for IE...

    I would definitely recommend moving on to the html doctype though. Your old "xhtml 1.0 transitional" is an amazingly ancient doctype at this point (I realize you're saying the site started in 1994, but I have to think most of the code would be newer than that by now).

    XHTML 1.0 transitional was introduced along with the current standard doctypes in 1997. It is the one that allows the page to be served either as HTML or as XHTML. The strict version is supposed to only be used with XHTML and there are still a few too many IE8 users to completely disable a site for them. Once IE8 dies then upgrading that doctype will be possible. That will probably happen at around the same time (or possibly just before) (X)HTML 5 becomes the replacement standard - but and XHTML 1.0 strict page will also validate as XHTML 5 so no further changes would be needed other than to remove the doctype (since in XHTML5 there is no doctype needed).
