Use border-radius (and -moz-border-radius for Firefox). It's cross-browser compatible and gives good control with a nice effect.

The newest browser versions directly support 'border-radius' without the vendor specific -moz or -webkit prefixes. For support of all versions include both in such a way that the newer browsers see 'border-radius' first.

Older IE browsers (IE5.x and IE6) will require a .hta hack or one of several curve corners javascript solution.

FWIW some elements resist curving attempts on the newer versions of IE (IE 7 + 8) and Opera (below 10.50), 'Fieldset' comes to mind. The Fieldset's 'legend' ends up being inside the 'box' rather than it's normal place along the top border of the box.

You can create curves and pretty much any shape using basic CSS and will be compatible across all popular browsers past and present versions.

Experiment with the margin and height css properties

The specific browser hacks all they do is create more problems.
