SharePoint Online site theme in Office 365 isn't displayed when you use Internet Explorer 8

This issue occurs because recent changes were made to render themes in the browser instead of on the server. Office 365 is designed to work with the current or immediately preceding version of Internet Explorer. Therefore, Internet Explorer 8 can't render the themes.
