CSS Question

Putting css borders around radio buttons

I'm trying to get a garish red border around some radio buttons, but it is not showing up in Firefox latest or Chrome latest. Work fine in IE9/IE8.

Each of the input element on my form that are required has a data-val-required attribute put in by MVC3. All browsers puts in the red borders just dandy when we have a text or textarea inputs, but am struggling with the radio button. For IE, it works, but other browsers won't put the red border around it.


input[data-val-required], select[data-val-required], textarea[data-val-required]
background-color: #F0FFFF;
border: 1px solid red;


<label for="WaiveSelect">Do you waive confidentiality?</label><br />
<input data-val="true" data-val-number="The field WaiveSelect must be a number." data-val-required="Please select waive." id="WaiveSelect" name="WaiveSelect" type="radio" value="0" /> No, I do not waive confidentiality<br />
<input id="WaiveSelect_2" name="WaiveSelect" type="radio" value="2" /> Yes, I waive confidentiality<br />
<input id="WaiveSelect_3" name="WaiveSelect" type="radio" value="3" /> Yes, I waive confidentiality except to the client<br />
<span class="field-validation-valid" data-valmsg-for="WaiveSelect" data-valmsg-replace="true"></span>

What it looks like in IE (Firefox and Chrome shows no borders):

You could accomplish by wrapping each < input type="radio" /> with < div > tag and give it a border and a float left... like this

<div style="border:1px solid red;float:left">
   <input type="radio".. />
