For Internet Explorer i use respondjs to get media queries to work, but this breaks the PIE.htc.

If i remove respondjs from source than PIE.htc will work.

I've isolated this problem as well. See comments on PIE forum: http://css3pie.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=1815

PIE parses some styles, respond.js parses some styles too... I think this is where they come into a conflict.

I also had this issue, but now everything is fine. Do not know exactly what solved the problem, but I have media-queries in the main css file and all PIE-related declarations in old IEs css file only. Maybe this could help.

I was having the same issue, what did solve it though was loading PIE (v1.0.0) through modernizr.load (v2.6.2) and right after that load respond.js (v1.1.0) within an IE conditional. I don't really know why though...

I can't load it in a media query at all. Is that a known issue? At 41k plus an HTTP request, I only wanted to load it for screen > 1028.

You wrote you solved the issue with using PIE from modernizr 2.6.2 and then loading respond.js 1.1.0
I tried that but PIE doesn't work.


<script src="modernizr.custom.42943.js"></script> <script src="Respond-master/respond.src.js"></script>

border: 0px solid #000;
-webkit-border-radius: 8px;
-moz-border-radius: 8px;
border-radius: 8px;
behavior: url(PIE.htc);

Would you (or someone else) PLEASE tell me what I made wrong?
PIE works only without respond.js + Media Queries.

If I cant solve it, my last option is to make png's instead of PIE.

Thanks for every answer,
kind regards

I had the same issue and solved it by switching from PIE.htc to PIE.js. See http://css3pie.com/documentation/pie-js/
