Home Forums CSS Does IE9 support color:transparent and li:nth-child(1)? Re: Does IE9 support color:transparent and li:nth-child(1)?

**IE9 does support :nth-child() pseudo-selectors.**

However I’m facing some difficulties finding a source regarding the transparent keyword. I know it was first introduced in CSS1 as a valid value for the background-color property.

Then, CSS2 allowed border-color to have transparent as a valid value. Now, as far as CSS3 is concerned, transparent has become a valid value for anything accepting a color value.

But, I don’t know where IE9 stands on the topic. I’d say it supports it on both border-color and background-color, for sure. But I don’t know it’s okay for the color property.

Anyone wanna spread some knowledge here?

**EDIT**: I just tested it, **it does support transparent as a value for the color property**. You’re free to go.
