    I'm facing a strange problem.

    I'm using Telerik Q2 2010 (2010.2.713.40).
    When I a have a RadTextBox in a form the rendering is nice with Firefox but in IE8 when you enter text, the text is placed vertically in the middle and when the input lose focus the text goes up 2 or 3 px. (I've attached an image with the 2 states one onto the other).
    When I'm running with IE 8 in compatibility mode the problem disappear (I've also attached a screenshot that demonstrate the problem is not here anymore).

    I'm using RadFormDecorator and I suppose it's the source of the problem. because when I delete it there is no problems...

    Thanks for the real quality of your support team!

    Hi Pascal,

    I succeeded to reproduce the problem. To fix it, you should use the following CSS code in the head section of your document:

    <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "">
    <head runat="server">
        <style type="text/css">
            .RadForm .riTextBox
                font-family: "Segoe UI", Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif !important;
        <form id="form1" runat="server">
        <asp:ScriptManager ID="sc1" runat="server">
        <div style="height: 2000px">
        <telerik:RadFormDecorator ID="fd1" runat="server" DecoratedControls="All" />
        <telerik:RadTextBox ID="txt1" runat="server">
        <div style="height: 2000px">

    The problem comes from inconsistency of the font styles, which will be fixed in  - Q2 SP1, which is will be released in the end of August, 2010.

    If the suggested code does not fix the problem, please open a support ticket and send us a sample project that reproduces the issue so we can investigate further.

    Kind regards,
    the Telerik team
