Post Border-radius + border-color problem ?

I have a problem (image attached, see red circles) with border-radius + border-color on the same element.

this is the CSS from FireBug for that element (#content)

I added that .htc file as needed, relative path blah blah... :)
Maybe the !important in '.pink_border' class makes it go crazy?
How can I fix that?


#content.select_photo {
    height: 790px;

#content {
    -moz-border-radius: 15px 15px 15px 15px;
    background: url("../images/background.jpg") no-repeat scroll center top #B6D66B;
    border: 2px solid #000000;
    height: 545px;
    padding-top: 12px;
    position: relative;
    width: 756px;

.pink_border {
    border-color: #ED008C !important;

Yep, your use of !important is causing the border-color style to be non-overridable. PIE needs to be able to override it to hide the normal border (by setting it to 'transparent').

The easy fix is just to give your .pink_border selector a higher specificity so it takes precedence over the border color from #content. Personally I always recommend this anyway; in my experience !important almost always leads to maintenance and flexibility problems. But YMMV. ;)
