the following markup leads to the target element's background to be filled with the box-shadow color. adding an explicit background color works around the problem. ie9 is not affected.

<!DOCTYPE html>

    <style type='text/css'>

        #shadowed {
            position: relative;
            box-shadow: #aaaaaa 0px 0px 3px ;
            behavior: url(/3rd/css3pie/;



    <div id='container'>

        <div id='shadowed'>
            in the shadows
