DD_roundies 0.0.2a will have IE8 support

December 20, 2008

I have read these pages:

I’ll be a few extra steps to get everything to apply easily in IE8 (it might mean different function calls for a developer making use of the library), but the raw VML will work correctly in IE8 standards mode.  The tests from the above links work well in my virtual machine, and some rendered source code stolen from IE7 and plopped into raw HTML works in IE8 – so long as it is all encapsulated inside a relative-position DIV.  I’m not sure why that last part is important, but it appears to be a key ingredient!

    DD_belatedPNG works like a freaking charm!
    Much better than the .htc file hack
    I was using before.
