IE8 does not render web pages like IE7 or Firefox

Recommended Posts



I finally decided to take a look at my web pages in IE8 since it was out of beta. Overall it seems to be OK ... but, I did find some elements in my pages that were not rendering well.


So what to take away from this, is that Microsoft hasn't been able to keep the browser experience consistent between versions of their own browsers.


PS: the part of my page that does not work in IE8, works fine in:


- IE6

- IE7

- Firefox

- Safari.


... Man!

If you can't find a solution for IE8 without a lot of recoding, it's simpler to force viewers to use the IE7 compatibility mode by putting this code just after the

tag, (not further down the head tag because if it's after some other items in the head it doesn't work):-



close with /> for XHTML
