Post Sharing some experiences

I have successfully used CSS PIE in a small IE8 ".HTA" application I am writing.

Some observations from my experience:-

- My application dynamically shows and hides elements. PIE can have a noticable lag when switching display="bock" and display="none". The quicker solution has been to hide the elements using position="absolute" and left="-1000", and then show using position="static". Seems to avoid much re-processing.

- Try to avoid creating elements using createElement. I.e. try to re-use hidden elements that PIE has already processed. E.g. for a drop-down box, I re-use the same DIV (again hidden as above), and just change its contents.

- If you must create an element using createElement then make sure you set display="block" before applying any class or id to invoke PIE. PIE does not seem to invoke if you apply the class or id, and then call display="block".

- Pie works on table cells (TDs). I use it for the corner cells in some tables. But oddly, it seems to work only if you set border="0px solid red" for the TD. I.e. if I set border="1px sold red" then I get two borders overlapping.

Great work.
