    Using Q1 2009

    I'm working on a custom skin based on the WebBlue skin.  When I use a fieldset and add a background color to it in the CSS it spills out above the top.  I know this is an IE problem which I've experienced in the past with other projects however the Black skin renders it without spilling out the top using the same code but just swapping skins.

    How is the Black skin able to render the fieldset without the background color spilling out the top?  I compared CSS files between the two skins and didn't see anything different.

    BTW, it renders fine as long as I don't use a legend.

    Hello Robert,

    Neither of the RadFormDecorator skins that decorate fieldsets uses a background color for this very unfortunate IE behavior (we are at a loss what the guys at IE were thinking when they made this implementation). All decorated fieldsets use semitransparent background images which are re-positioned in IE by using javascript to address this problem (if a legend element is set).
