I just made a page and it renders ok in FF and IE 6,7 but not in IE8.
I used <meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=EmulateIE7" />
and still it didnt work.
YOu can see it here www.samanthacatering.com, do you have a clue?
If you are having trouble running sites in IE8 that worked in IE7 I strongly recomend 'Compatibility Mode' which lets you search pages that aren't up to speed with IE8 technology. This link is helpful in explaining how it works. http://support.microsoft.com/kb/956197/
