When coding a template, Bulbawiki standards have come to have rounded borders in most templates. The CSS3 specification for accomplishing this is border-radius; however, many popular browsers have taken to using their own specification. At the moment, Gecko-based (i.e. mozilla_firefox.png Mozilla Firefox, Flock_16x16x32.png Flock), WebKit-based (i.e. safari.png Apple Safari, google_chrome_01.png Google Chrome), and Presto-based browsers (i.e. opera-2.png Opera) support a form of this. Other browsers, such as internet_explorer.png Microsoft Internet Explorer, do not currently support this; however, there are workarounds. Reference sites for these specifications can be found below.

Even with IE8 released, Internet Explorer has yet to have any form of border-radius implemented. A transition to the CSS3 standard border-radius is planned for IE9. A workaround is found here, which uses an IE specific JavaScript code to create rounded borders.
