    IE 8 not loading CSS 3 features

    I'm beyond confused. I've used HTML5/CSS3 features and had them working just fine in IE 8 before, but for the life of me I can't figure out what the problem is this time. The site is here - http://giantseedcreative.com/dev/connect2012/index.html. When I look at in in Firefox or IE 9 it works great, but then in IE 8 the CSS 3 features don't show up at all. Anyone have a clue what I'm doing wrong?

    Thanks!

    Old Browsers will not support features that were before their time. IE 8 does not have support for CSS 3.
    Logic without the fatal effects.

    Hi GiantssedCreativ. Welcome tot he forums.

    I'm not sure why the shim/shiv isn't working for you, but a lot of people recommend using it in conjunction with css normalize: http://necolas.github.com/normalize.css/

    See if that helps.
