The Dreaded IE8
# November 15, 2012 at 7:46 pm
I had a huge wakeup call when I realized a client was discovering in her analytics that IE8 was still being used by 50% of her Windows users (and she gets a lot of traffic).
So I’ve been going into all my sites, and fixing border radiuses (with PIE) and box shadows (still can’t get this one all the time, but I’ll make a post about it later)
One of the things I’ve noticed is I can’t seem to float:right an image in IE-8.
Well, I guess I’m wondering….should I be using float:right to align images right and around text or something else?# November 16, 2012 at 5:54 am

As @theacefes says PIE can be somewhat troublesome. I always recommend using it only on the essentials as it does have problems with shadows, especially in responsive design.
I’d recommend using it in moderation only on bits that look broken or absolutely require gradients/radiuses. Shadows ultimately are more visual flair, if you can get away without using them make sure you do.
Keep in mind also that if you do use shadows with PIE make sure to set the background colour of the element because it will otherwise show the shadow underneath the content of the box.
