Dialog shadows not shown in IE with quirks mode

Component: UI : Dialogs Version: 3.0
Keywords: IE Cc:


Our page HTML code forces us to use quirks mode in IE. When integrating CKEDitor, the dialog shadow images are not rendered by IE. This works ok in all other supported browsers.

To reproduce, access the CKEditor demo page with internet explorer 9, use the developer tools (F12), switch to quirks mode and view the editor with the V2 skin. Now (for example) open the image dialog window. The popup dialog is shown, but no drop-shadows are visible.

Yes, using IE developer tools may seem like a developer hack, but this is only to give you easy steps to reproduce. We observe this exact same behavior on our own page which, as written above, is non-trivial and requires quirks mode to function correctly.

Actually it can and should be reproduced with X-UA-Compatible tag

<meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=5" />

We don't support IE Developer Tools. This is a separate application.

Anyway, even with the tag, issue has been reproducible from CKEditor 3.0.

This is so called graceful degradation. Not every feature must work in every environment. Shadows aren't crucial.
