Our website looks good in IE8, but many browsers are viewing it in compatibility mode, what does not look so good.
I tried this in the layout.master: <meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=EDGE" />
But it doesn't work.
I also tried to add CSS in the style.ie7.css but it doesn't help either (with this in layout.master <portal:IEStyleIncludes ID="IEStyleIncludes1" runat="server" IncludeHtml5Script="false" IE6CssFile="style.ie6.css" IE7CssFile="style.ie7.css" />). We don't want to support IE7, but I thought this would help the compatibility mode to look good.
Is there a way I could force IE8 to stop compatibility mode?
Thank you very much for your help
