    In IE8, the nice shaded box that surrounds the individual items in the ListView is not there, which I assume is a CSS issue with IE8.  This happens on the Kendo Web ListView Editing example, which is what I've used as a model:
    http://demos.kendoui.com/web/listview/editing.html


    I've attached images of what it looks like in IE8 and IE9 browser mode.  Unfortunately, our browser standard right now is IE8 and I'd really like to have the nicer formatting.  Is there a way to get IE8 to display the same way as IE9?

    Thanks!

    Hello Cyndie,

    Yes, the inner shadows are defined with CSS3 styles, which are not supported by obsolete browsers. Generally, the ListView item styling depends on your preferences, so you can use regular CSS2 background image / color styles which work identically in all browsers.

    Hmmm, I guess I find that disappointing, since you advertise "Kendo UI is designed to support all major browsers, including: Internet Explorer 7+", yet your examples are not designed to be cross-browser friendly. :(

    Hello Cyndie,

    I think there is some misunderstanding with regard to ListView browser support. Yes, the Kendo UI ListVIew supports IE7 in terms of functionality, but the ListView appearance depends entirely on the application designer and the developer, because this particular widget has no native / built-in look. That is why i really don't see a problem here. As I already mentioned, you can achieve the exact same ListView look in IE7, but you need to use different CSS code. We have used an easier approach, because our online demos have been designed to show the Kendo UI widget's features and their purpose is not to be copy-pasted in real-world scenarios.
