As more and more people are starting to use Internet Explorer 8 due to Windows updates many designers / developers might not have had the IE8 browser changes in mind when creating their website. As IE7 and IE8 have some major differences Windows have allowed users to add 1 line of code to make your website when viewed in IE8 to use all IE7 settings / config for styling and showing your website.

At the top of your code between the <head></head> tags add the following line of code:

<meta http-equiv=”X-UA-Compatible” content=”IE=EmulateIE7″ />

This will now set IE8 to use IE7 on your website.
