INTRODUCTION

Microsoft has released a Compatibility View list update for Windows Internet Explorer 8.

Internet Explorer 8 improves browser interoperability and delivers a better implementation of Web standards. However, users may experience some compatibility issues with sites that still rely on the behavior of earlier versions of Internet Explorer. We understand that the shift toward standards compatibility with Internet Explorer 8 may take some time to finish. To bridge this transition, the Compatibility View list upate is available. This update helps make Web sites that are designed for older browsers look better in Internet Explorer 8.
