This enables you to do CSS 3 and psuedo classes for Internet Explorer 6-8.

Project description


This product allows you to make sites faster since you don’t need to worry about some of the hang ups from Internet Explorer.

This Product works in Plone 2.5, 3, 4+

1.) If you want to use transparent pngs for your IE6 sites add the following to a dtml method css stylesheet

/* <dtml-with base_properties> (do not remove this :) */
/* <dtml-call "REQUEST.set('portal_url', portal_url())"> (not this either :) */
 *html  img, div, a, input { behavior: url(&dtml-portal_url;/; } to a IE6 only stylesheet.
 /* </dtml-with> */

2.) New features include being able to do CSS 3 (Uses css3pie type things in IE 6,7,8. Things like border-radius, box-shadow, text-shadow.

A.) To use the CSS 3 features make a ie only css file and add your file into the css area of main_template. In Plone 4 you can just add the condition for the css registry file.

<!–[if lt IE 9]><link href=”IEFixes_foo.css” media=”screen” type=”text/css” rel=”stylesheet”> <![endif]–>

B.) Add these 2 lines to your css class or id.

behavior: url(&dtml-portal_url;/;
position: relative;

Make a list of classes that need to be changed in IE in your IEFixes_foo.css file. Example

.fooclass {
 behavior: url(&dtml-portal_url;/;
    position: relative;

C.) Issues with CSSPie.. You can’t do less then all four border-radius easily:

.portalHeader {
border-top-left-radius: 10px;
border-bottom-left-radius: 10px;

should be:

.portalHeader {
    border-radius: 10px 0px 0px 10px;

Also, if you are are doing gradients there is a hook:

#portal-header {
    -pie-background: linear-gradient(#D3D4D5, #FEFEFE); /*PIE*/
