Working around a serious IE8 bug
Fortunately, the bug only manifests when in IE8 standards mode. It doesn't happen in IE7, nor in IE8 under almost-standards mode or quirks mode.
So I was looking for the best way to tell IE to use a lower mode. I decided that
<meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=7">
But then I noticed that my page isn't valid HTML5 with that tag, which bothers me. I tried to use
<!--[if IE 8]> <meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=7"> <![endif]-->
<!--[if IE]> <meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=7"> <![endif]-->
Also, ideally I'd allow IE9 to display the page in IE9 mode rather than IE8 mode (for when it comes out). Any thoughts on how I can improve on any of these areas?
