IE8 in compatibility mode
compatability mode makes wrong css positioning

 6:36 am on Aug 21, 2012 (gmt 0)


I have a css positioning problem with IE8 (and presumably earlier versions?) when it's in compatibility mode.

I've checked, IE9 is ok, other browsers ok, it's only compat. mode that seems to be the problem: turn it off and the positioning is correct.

So, is there a way to identify if a user is in compat. mode?

If so, I'd probably put up an alert including how to change the mode... unless there's a way to override that mode?

You can send a HTTP header or you can add a meta tag in the HTML to tell IE to stop the compatibility mode (or even to force it into that foolishness).

Best heard from those making it I guess:
