  • Change IE8 to IE7 compatible mode with meta tags

    I got some questions regarding how to make sure IE8 will run in IE7 mode by default when visiting a site without changing the IE8 options.

    There is a meta tag which can be used to force IE8 to "display" a site in IE7 mode:

    Turn the mode to IE7:
    <meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=7">
    Make sure IE8 emulate IE7:
    <meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=EmulateIE7"/>
