    Is forcing IE7 compatibility a valid workaround?

    Hi all
    I've had problems today with a WYSIWYG editor I've installed in a textarea on my site. The textarea always spills over the side of the table. The error shown is window.opener.WYSIWYG is null or not an object but I can't be certain that this is related to that problem. Anyway, I can solve all this using the line:

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

    in the header to force IE7 compatibility. My spider-sense is tingling about this. Way, way too easy!

    I'm just coming to terms with the background to IE8's compatibility view. Is it a valid technique to force IE7 compatibility?
    Thanks, Steve

    I've included before (IE8) and after (forced IE7) images to show you what's happening.

    As an correction to my first post, the wysiwyg error is a feature of both IE7 and IE8. Please ignore that.
