    Hello everyone,

    I thought the CSS gradient generator http://www.colorzilla.com/gradient-editor/ gave me cross-browser code for my site at atlantareviewgroup.com, but it doesn't work! In Firefox/Chrome, it looks great, but on ALL versions of IE I want to have the same effects. Does anyone know anything else about alternatives to text-shadow and gradients that will appear in IE? I don't care about IE6 or 8, but I'd like to get the same effects for IE9.

    stupid IE

    Someone said I can use JavaScript to do this instead of CSS?

    http://webdesignerwall.com/tutorials...r-css-gradient <-- that should give you the idea in IE. Drop shadow works in a similar fashion.

    This is some code of a current gradient I have on the home page.
    Code:
    background: #a90329; /* Old browsers */
        background: -moz-linear-gradient(top, #a90329 0%, #8f0222 44%, #6d0019 100%); /* FF3.6+ */
        background: -webkit-gradient(linear, left top, left bottom, color-stop(0%,#a90329), color-stop(44%,#8f0222), color-stop(100%,#6d0019)); /* Chrome,Safari4+ */
        background: -webkit-linear-gradient(top, #a90329 0%,#8f0222 44%,#6d0019 100%); /* Chrome10+,Safari5.1+ */
        background: -o-linear-gradient(top, #a90329 0%,#8f0222 44%,#6d0019 100%); /* Opera11.10+ */
        background: -ms-linear-gradient(top, #a90329 0%,#8f0222 44%,#6d0019 100%); /* IE10+ */
        filter: progid:DXImageTransform.Microsoft.gradient( startColorstr='#a90329', endColorstr='#6d0019',GradientType=0 ); /* IE6-9 */
        background: linear-gradient(top, #a90329 0%,#8f0222 44%,#6d0019 100%); /* W3C */
    A lot of that should be working on IE (a lot of this was in the article you linked).. or do I possibly have something turned off or disabled in IE?

    That site you linked to has a checkbox to enable IE9 support.

    GAME, that filter doesn't work in IE9.

    It doesn't? No surprise. I haven't tried it in IE9 (don't have a reason to).

    Oops. I didn't see that IE9 support. That's something. I'm gonna pop over to the JavaScript side and ask a question about cross-browser text shadows. I want that effect to work in IE.

    On second thought with some other advice I've received, it's not worth to put text shadows on just about everything. I was thinking shadows make things more legible, but others are telling me it's quite hard to read.

    I was going to tell you the same thing, actually, but it's good that you came to that conclusion on your own.

    They're okay once in a while, but not for long passages of text.
