I'm surprised a solution like this wasn't thought of sooner. Thanks Jason!
In fact, it was -- there has been a rounded HTC-based corners hack available for some time (http://www.htmlremix.com/
), which I've used extensively in the past. I also wrote my own one some time ago (though I used corner graphics, as I didn't know about VML at the time).
However, the htmlremix script has a load of shortcomings; CSS3Pie is a *far* *far* superior script. So yes, I can agree with your sentiment -- Many many thanks Jason!!!
