CSS Question

IE8 and border css property on select menus

I am getting a really strange behaviour when viewing a very simple piece of HTML in IE, served up by IIS. I am at a loss to explain this...

Take the following html


border:red solid 1px ;
<select class="iWantaBorder">

Save as html file to your desktop.
When viewed in IE8, the select menu has a red border.

Now copy the file to a website or virtual directory in IIS 5.1 or IIS6.

Browse to that file in IE8... no red border.

Can anyone tell me what is going on here? I really want a border on this menu. Thought this should be simple to be honest, but I'm pretty much confused!

try putting this in your HEAD tag:

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