IE8 outputting from localhost VS outputting live from server
Rounded corners do not work live!

 3:31 pm on Mar 23, 2012 (gmt 0)

I try to fight IE8 non css3 compliance to border-radius
by using PIE.htc
I have a machine running XP and IE8 displaying the rounded corners perfectly. if I use any other machines running Wins7 and any browsers, indeed, it works fine.

if I upload it and try IE8 outputting from my server then it does not work.

I know IE8 does not support rounded corners however when using PIE it should work as it works on my local IE8
any thoughts?

.round_box {
border:2px solid #a1a1a1;
padding:10px 35px;
behavior: url(/PIE.htc);

IE probably isn't finding PIE.htc from your stylesheet because the relative URL for behavior: resovles differently on the two systems. Use a complete URL and I bet it works the same on both.

Ah! Thanks, you made me search even further.

I made it, here are a few pointers for trouble shooting
behavior url with ".htc" extension

1) server confic does not recognize .htc
2) in a PHP environment upload also PIE.php and follow instruction.(Worked in my PHP environment)
3) you might give a try to the uncompressed .htc
4) toy with real path

Conclusion: PIE is the only method that I could make working with IE8
