Image does not stretch on IE8


I am trying to use images on the my tabs in the tabsheet, it works fine on browsers like FF, chrome and IE9, however since IE8 does not support background-size, the image does not stretch in the tab cell. So I tried using the

-ms-filter:“progid:DXImage(ransform.Microsoft.AlphaImageLoader(src=‘myimgae.jpg’, sizingMethod=‘scale’)”;

In my style.css, but this does not work. Is there any other way to fix this problem? Or am I not using the alphaimageloader in a right way? Please help.
