radio button bug in IE for mac?

    When I view radio buttons in IE on the mac, the background has squares
    behind it, whereas the radio button has a transparent background using
    Netscape for mac or either IE or netscape for the PC. For example,
    check out the radio buttongs here:
    http://www.avn.com/index.php?Primary_Navigation=Search

    Has anyone discovered a workaround for this other than placing the
    buttons on a white background?

    Are you using CSS to control the look of your radio buttons or INPUT? I've
    found that when using CSS, it doesn't render the radio buttons as you
    mention.

    I wouldn't worry about it. IE on mac is frowned upon it was never a good
    browser. I think as long as you are fine on Safari and Mozilla flavor
    browsers you should be fine. Your page looked fine in Safari and Mozilla.

    IE for Mac was far ahead of IE for Windows at the time. In fact, when it
    was released, it had better CSS support that most (all?) other browsers
    that were available. Of course, it is rather old now, and compared to
    current browsers it is not that good, but to say it was never good is
    going a bit far, I think.

    I'd go for "most" rather than "all". I *still* marvel at how good Opera
    3.6x is at CSS.

    That's why the all was a question - I wasn't really in the business at
    the time.
