Andrew,

On top of what I said, you may want to have a look to

Button Background Shift On :active Bug (IE8 bug)
http://haslayout.net/css/Button-Background-Shift-On-active-Bug

and

:active pseudo-class not triggered on link text wrapped in an element in IE8
http://www.brunildo.org/test/IE8_active.html

> what is your IE setting for styling display of form controls in
such IE version??

By that, I meant: Tools/Internet Options.../Advanced tab/Browsing
category/Enable visual style on buttons and controls in webpages


When a button is activated, it should look as if it is inset or as if it
has been depressed into the canvas and that's it: there is no accurate
specific rules to follow. Most browsers just switch the border around the
buttons from outset or solid to inset or toggle 2 system colors
(http://www.w3.org/TR/CSS21/ui.html#system-colors) for border and for
background.

regards, Gérard
