IE 8 Compatibility View and Meta Tag

As I understand by default, all internet sites display in IE8 Standards Mode (Compatibility View off) while all intranet sites display in IE7 Standards Mode (Compatibility View on).

If I set META TAG as

<meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=EmulateIE8" />

it will work IE without checkbox and it will be Compatibility View off.

Is this correct solution or there is better solution than this?

We have current version at URL:

IE v9-7.

So, issue is v7 or IE9 has the same setting as v8 (Compatibility View off)?

Why not get it to work in any version of IE without conditional comments or other hacks?

IE10 will not support conditional comments when it comes out.
