View Full Version : IE8 and CSS clip

06-01-2009, 01:57 PM
As you might know, IE6 and IE7 have a separate syntax for CSS clip attribute:

Standard CSS:


IE6 and IE7 do not like the commas :

clip:rect(0 286px 168px 251px)

My question is: Does IE8 keep the IE6 and IE7 behavior? Or it follows, finally the standards? I don't have (nor I don't want to) IE8 installed, so that... :)

IE8 claims to support 'clip' now. IE6/7 never did.

Thank your for the answer.

Oh, but they did. As I said, IE6 and IE7 support their own clip CSS attribute, same as standard, except for the commas between values.

I needed to know if IE8 supports turned onto the standard now or kept the "old IE like" CSS clip behavior.

It's standards-compliant now.
