IE6/7 Dotted border issues…

  • # September 29, 2008 at 8:11 am

    Ok, so I’m working on a new WordPress theme and I’ve set one of my divs to have a border bottom of 1px dotted.

    Unfortunately, as many of us already know for some reason IE6 is stupid and shows it as a dashed border instead. No big deal… Except what’s happening is that the border-color (the actual dotos – well dashes in IE6) are showing up to be almost a black color with my actual border color, it looks like behind it. This is only happening on border-bottom. I added a IE conditional so that the border wouldn’t be 1px dotted, but "thin dotted", which fixed the dash problem, but the dots still stayed almost black on top of my actual border color. I ended up just switching to a solid border, which works fine, but I want to find out why IE6 & 7 decided not to use my border color in the proper way.

    Anyone else experience this?
