Michael Calore of Wired has a writeup of the IE team “Ask The Experts” web chat from this week.
Here is the meat:
- The target for CSS support in IE8 is full and complete support for CSS2.1.
- The only CSS3 module in IE8 is writing-mode (for vertical text support). IE has supported this since version 5.x, so it will continue to do so.
- IE8 will not support CSS’ border-radius, which is often used to make rounded corners without images. Microsoft’s Chris Wilson confirms that border-radius support is “high on the wish list,” though, and should make its way into the next release after IE8.
- There is no official roadmap for IE9, but native SVG support is likely.
SVG support would be great, and please give us canvas. Please, Chris. What can I write on Ajaxian to help the case? ;)
