Internet Explorer – IE7 Compatibility Tag

IE 8 has been released for awhile now. If you create web pages, then you probably should be aware of the IE 7 compatibility meta data tag which can force your pages you have working in IE 7, to be compatible with IE 8.  IE 8 attempts to adhere to the CSS web standards and your old (yeah they are old now) IE 7 pages may not render correctly in IE 8.
Below is the meta data tag which you can use to force IE 8 to render the page in IE 7 format.
<meta http-equiv=”X-UA-Compatible” content=”IE=EmulateIE7″ />
