IE8 – force your site to display in IE7

There is a lot of developers like me are struggling with IE browsers to get their designs work.

Even if you write separate CSS for the IE , sometimes that won’t work in different versions of IE.

If you have just seen your site in IE8 and you feel like crying because all of your hard work has been thrown out of the window, don’t rush into that re-design just yet. You can force IE8 to act like IE7 while you work on a full-time fix, by just including this in the header of your pages(s):

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

After that write css alone for IE7!!

That will solve someone’s headache
