During these 2-3 weeks I was designing an Intranet site based on SharePoint 2010. Although it was an Internal site but the design and look of the site was important for the managers and in some cases we needed to use CSS3 techniques. The users were using IE 9.

To do this you know that the META tag in master pages should be changed as most of the designers know.

<meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=8"/>

I found that changing this tag has some side effects and finally we come come up to not to use CSS3 in SharePoint 2010 if it’s not really necessary. In other words if the functionality is more important than the look and feel, ask the company to meet you in halfway in terms of look and feel.

Some sections that are affected in IE 9 by changing META  tag content property.

  • InfoPath forms services ( In our cases, the customized list forms, the submit button stopped working in IE )
  • Ribbon look and feel ( in our case, it lost her background and became transparent)
