Google Maps v2 Compatibility w/ IE8
I can't seem to find a straight answer to this so am asking here in the hopes someone may know. Is Google maps v2 only compatible with IE8 via forcing it into IE7 compatibility mode? I manage several sites that work fine with v2 on ALL browsers except IE8 (probably IE9, f**k IE) and I would appreciate an answer. I just learned about this today, I just don't understand how the hell something can work on the piles of trash that are IE6 and IE7 yet not work on IE8, its mind boggling.
ThanksThe only code I hate more than my own is everyone else's.

How about in IE8? (winds up laptop)
Yep, sure enough, IE8 uses a Document Mode of IE7 Standards on that page.
I do see though that the page uses a Transitional DOCTYPE.
I don't know about your own pages yet, but perhaps you would like to have a look through this informative article: How IE8 Determines Document Mode
