SharePoint Tip #23. Do you know “how to make MOSS sites rendered correctly in IE8”?

Some Web sites may not be displayed correctly or work correctly in Windows Internet Explorer 8. There is a KB956197 on Mictosoft site, explaining this problem.

This issue affects the MOSS sites to be rendered fine. The good thing of this that it’s very small fix to apply on the master page to have your SharePoint sites rendered correctly – you need to set the IE7 compatibility explicitly.

Just add the following code to the META section of your master.Page

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

This will force your site to be displayer in IE compatibility mode and it renders without any glitches and nothing stops you to use IE8 for your SharePoint environments.
