One possible way to support IE9. I'm not sure if I like it, but thought I'd share it to see what you all make of it. I'm still searching for a better solution.



Thanks. Clever approach! Hmm.. I think I agree with you though - not sure I like it as an addition to the markup pattern. I'll keep this in the tracker for now, but let's try and come up with some alternative ideas. :)



Also this doesn't fix the Android issue, which is essentially the same problem.

The included update to explains the changes I'm proposing to the markup pattern (there no changes to elements themselves) to support browsers that formerly did not work, like iOS4, IE browsers versions 6-10, Android browsers 1.x and up. As a result, there aren't any known "unsupported" browsers, in that every browser tested so far at least receives a fallback image - for example, IE6-8 will only see picture source elements that do not use media queries, since it doesn't support them natively (media types are ok though). Fixes #5 and Fixes #8.
