    border-radius and border-image issues in IE and Opera

    I've spent all morning preparing this link for testing purposing so I can maybe (hopefully) make it easier to get some help. I previously built a custom website for a client which they like very much. He is a welder so you will see how the gaudy border comes into play (LOL). I managed to build the border and it works well enough in all 5 browsers but I know it isn't the proper way of building a border these days. here is the link but its just to show the border
    I am in the development stage of redoing the website in Wordpress and trying to do the border on it properly. So for testing purposing I started this page using examples and small tutorials. You will see my metal border and border-radius works on 3 out of those 5 browsers. Here it is Border Testing
    I don't imagine I need to paste all the code in here but will do so to save time;
    margin:100px auto;
    padding: 12px;
    border: 18px solid pink;
    -moz-border-radius: 15px;
    border-radius: 15px;
    margin:100px auto;
    padding: 12px;
    border: 18px solid green;
    -moz-border-radius: 15px;
    border-radius: 15px;
    /********I REALLY WANT THIS METAL BORDER TO WORK***********/
    margin:100px auto;
    padding: 12px;
    border-style: solid;
    border-width: 31px 29px 32px 26px;
    -moz-border-image: url(images/outer_border.png) 31 29 32 26 round;
    -webkit-border-image: url(images/outer_border.png) 31 29 32 26 round;
    -o-border-image: url(images/outer_border.png) 31 29 32 26 round;
    border-image: url(images/outer_border.png) 31 29 32 26 round;
    .box {
    -moz-border-radius: 15px; /* Firefox */
    -webkit-border-radius: 15px; /* Safari and Chrome */
    border-radius: 15px; /* Opera 10.5+, future browsers, and now also Internet Explorer 6+ using IE-CSS3 */
    -moz-box-shadow: 10px 10px 20px #000; /* Firefox */
    -webkit-box-shadow: 10px 10px 20px #000; /* Safari and Chrome */
    box-shadow: 10px 10px 20px #000; /* Opera 10.5+, future browsers and IE6+ using IE-CSS3 */
    behavior: url(ie-css3.htc); /* This lets IE know to call the script on all elements which get the 'box' class */
    .box2 {
    width: 200px;
    height: 150px;
    margin: 0 auto 35px auto;
    padding: 15px;
    border: 11px solid #c6ac6c;
    position: relative;
    margin-top: 35px;
    -moz-border-radius: 32px;
    -webkit-border-radius: 32px;
    border-radius: 32px;
    -moz-box-shadow: 10px 10px 10px #000;
    -webkit-box-shadow: 10px 10px 10px #000;
    box-shadow: 10px 10px 10px #000;
    z-index: 2;
    behavior: url(ie-css3.htc);
    .rounded-corners {
    -moz-border-radius: 20px;
    -webkit-border-radius: 20px;
    -khtml-border-radius: 20px;
    border-radius: 20px;

    I think it would look better if you used nested <div>s to display the border. It would certainly be easier to code and maintain. Make a new version of the border background image large enough to fill the containing <div>, then just use 'backrgound-size' to make it "responsive". Something like:
    <style type="text/javascript">
    #outer {
       padding:40px;  /* or however wide you want the border */
       background-position:left top;
    Then you can just remove the #top and #bottom.
