    My company is using your Outlook skin for the RadTab control, and several people have commented about a line that appears over the highlighted tab if the user zooms the browser in or out.  I checked on your demo page, and the same thing happens there (I'm attaching a png file with the problem area circled in red).  It happens in both IE and Safari, but not Firefox.  Several of our users have commented that it looks unprofessional.  Is there a fix available for this or is there any way to remedy this in the skin file?

    Hi Scott,

    We are aware of this issue . Let me explain in some details. There are two facts that need to be taken into consideration. First -  zooming resizes pictures as well and second - certain percentages of zooming do not resize the picture enough so you get this appearance. For instance if the picture for the left corner is 5 pixels wide and if you resize it to 170%, that would be 8.5 pixels. Unfortunately, browsers can not resize the picture to that type of fractions yet, so the resize would either 8 or 9 pixels. In one case, you will have a perfect look, in the other, you'll have one additional pixel.

    I guess we could alter the skin and do a thing or two to fix all controls and skins, but it will take quite a lot of time to go through all possible variations. However we have noted it for consideration.
