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
border:2px solid #a1a1a1;
