This is a good one – as I’m sure many, including my own applications, aren’t quite ready for IE 8. The nice part of this is it’s possible to tell IE 8 to emulate with IE 7.
A good post on this can be found here:
There are two ways to implement this tag:
On a per-site basis, add a custom HTTP header : X-UA-Compatible: IE=EmulateIE7
On a per-page basis, add a special HTML tag to each document, right after the <head> tag :
<meta http-equiv=”X-UA-Compatible” content=”IE=EmulateIE7″ />
I was able to use the per-page on some pages, which forces the IE Emulate. Then later, I can go back and find out what craziness is going on and remove the tag.
