Dotted borders will display as dashed in win/IE... suxors. :(
You might try:
1. Specify a border-size of 2px. This should give you dotted borders in
IE (but, IMHO, 2px dotted does not look as good as 1px dotted... Hmmm,
will IE7 display 1px dotted borders correctly??).
2. Using filters, feed IE/PC 1px solid borders and give everyone else
1px dotted borders.
3. Use images (quickly slapped-together... used ALA technique):
