Later this year Microsoft will release a public version of their next browser. Compared to previous versions Internet Explorer 8 will by default be set to follow web standards rather than “MS standards”. This will create the need for yet another IE fix concerning styling and layout.
The following support article from Microsoft explains how you can add a little code to the file header to keep the old behavior (emulate IE7). You can off course also assume that IE8 will behave like Opera, Safari and Firefox and just keep the rules for older IE versions (I think I prefer the latter if it turns out okay).
You can download and test IE8 Beta here.
Fingers crossed 🙂
