Are there any alternatives I could use?

Welcome to sitepoint, There are not many css3 alternatives for ie unfortunately. & none that I know, even ugly hacks, that could replace the pseudo-class :target.
I would reccomend a css 2.2 alternative If possible
You could try this.
Thank you so much! That did the trick.
