IE background with filter opacity

IE background with filter opacity


figure figcaption {
    top: -65px;
    background: rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.7);
    -ms-filter: "progid:DXImageTransform.Microsoft.Alpha(Opacity=70)";
    filter: alpha(opacity=70);
    opacity: 0.7;
    zoom: 1;
    width: 195px;
    height: 65px;

for some reason the Background is not appearing on IE 8. Rest of the browsers are working fine.

Initial Considerations:

-moz-opacity: 0.70;
filter: alpha(opacity=70);


Opacity CSS not working in IE8

Internet Explorer Dev Center

Alternative Considerations:

You might want to try and experiment with the online ColorZilla app. I've found it to be incredibly helpful when trying to deal with browser versions and compatibility issues regarding not just gradients but backgrounds and their sometimes hard to remember properties.

/* IE9 SVG, needs conditional override of 'filter' to 'none' */
