PageBlock renders with old Style Look and Feel

When I use pageblocks and pageblocksections and outputfields, etc, I do not get the new Salesforce Look and Feel that I get when I view a standard SF page or when I use <apex:detail/>.

 

Why is that? Is there a way around that?

Set your pageblock mode attribute to "maindetail" and you'll pick up the new theme, otherwise it defaults to "detail" which is the old one.

Can you provide sample code? Also, what browser are you using?

<apex:page standardcontroller="Contact">
   <apex:detail/>
   <apex:pageblock>
      <apex:pageblocksection title="Info">
         <apex:outputfield value="contact.name"/>
      </apex:pageblocksection>
   </apex:pageblock>
</apex:page>

 The above code will render a standard looking SF record page, followed by a small older looking section.

 

I encounter this regardless of the browser, but if you must know, I use Safari and Chrome on a Mac, an I've seen the same effect on chrome, IE, and FF on a PC.

I cannot speak to how Opera handles it. (PC or on a Wii)
