I'm having an issue with a css rule for IE that I need to write it properly in Sharepoint master page in order to be taken into consideration on page load in IE browser. The way I wrote the rule in the head of page, doesn't seem to be working for IE.

What I am doing wrong?

<head id="Head1" runat="server">
     <meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=10"/>
    <!--[if IE]>
        <style type="text/css">
                position: relative;
            .image-link {
                background: url("/someimages/somedirectory/sometransparentpixel.png") 0 0 repeat;
                margin-top: 10px;

If you are using the IE 10+ version, please use pure CSS like this:

@media screen and (-ms-high-contrast: active), (-ms-high-contrast: none)
   /* IE10 and IE11-specific styles go here */
@media screen and (min-width:0\0)
    /* IE9 and IE10 rule sets go here */

  • Thank you very much! Indeed, condition doesn't work for IE 10+ so the CSS approach is perfect!
