[SOLVED] Specify different color for the header in IE

I'm quite happy with the design on tingslunda.com.preview.binero.se, but unfortunately there are still some people out there using Internet Explorer. In Mozilla, Chrome and Opera the black header text shows nicely since it's surrounded by an orange glow, but in IE it's just black on black.

Is there a way to specify a different color for the header text for IE users? In css inserts perhaps?

your problem is that you are using text-shadow:0 0 0.1em #FF8B00,0 0 0.3em #FF8B00; and good old IE doesn't support it

try this, add the following to ATO->Add HTML/CSS Inserts->HTML Inserts: Header
HTML Code:
<!--[if IE]>
<style type="text/css">
h1.blogtitle a:link,
h1.blogtitle a:visited,
h1.blogtitle a:active,
h2.blogtitle a:link,
h2.blogtitle a:visited,
h2.blogtitle a:active {
color:#00ffff !important;
}
</style>
<![endif]-->

Thanks a lot, that did the trick! I knew IE doesn't support text shadows, unfortunately site owner wants this particular design with black on black. Now I have to get him to switch from IE to Chrome to see the results!

You're quickly working your way towards another donation ;-)

Why not use an image instead of the text with a shadow??
