CSS3 Pie

Just discovered a nice way to achieve all of those lovely CSS3 features on IE6-8.  Previously I had generally used an IE specific CSS and images (Yeah I know nasty right?).  CSS3 Pie uses a bit of JavaScript to "fix" the missing border shadow and linear gradient CSS properties in IE6-8.

Now if we are fair IE7-8 can perform Linear gradients with a directX filter, e.g.

progid:DXImageTransform.Microsoft.gradient(startColorstr=#ffffffff, endColorstr=#ffdddddd);

But this is not perfect* and does not cover IE6.  If only everyone was on IE9, FF or Safari.

*Anti-alias text issues, click behaviour can be effected etc.
