I noticed the other day that msn's website has nice rounded corners like this on the top of their different topics.

The only reason I did no notice it sooner was because they only show up in IE (I am a Firefox fan). I also noticed they use the gradient filter for IE but my real questions are these.

1. I cannot find anywhere in the code how they did the rounded corners for those headers in the picture above. How did they do that?

2. I decided to do a "save as" within IE to have a look at the site. It will not however let me save it in IE only in Firefox. Firefox does not appear to have the methodology to their rounded corners. Is it a javascript that blocks users from doing a "save as" in IE?

Maybe these are basic questions but they seem to have perplexed me.

Thanks in advance.

Question on MSN site

How studied are you on CSS rounded corners? That's the best way to do this in my experience.

Question on MSN site

The reason I posted this was because I could not for the life of me figure out how they (MSN) did the rounder corners. I cannot find it in the code.

In any case... to answer your question.

I think there are several options out there. I haven't really had the need to use it yet but have researched it.

Here's a link to my personal bookmarks (all 800 of them). There are a slew of CSS links in there. I think some of them had tutorials on other ways to accomplish the same thing.

Thanks again.

Question on MSN site

They must have changed it again. Just last week it was rounded corners. If you look at the top of my post you can see a small pic of it.

Either that or my mind is going crazy!

Sorry bout that.
