    I can’t figure out how to get this menu supported in IE8. [Big Guns BBQ](http://www.biggunsbarbq.com “”)

    I the menu just stacks on top of each other. Don’t you know how to go into IE and hit f12 and look at the IE 8 standards? @paulie_d

    You’re using HTML5 elements, so you need to add in HTML5 shiv to your site [https://code.google.com/p/html5shiv/](https://code.google.com/p/html5shiv/ “https://code.google.com/p/html5shiv/”)

    That’s exactly what I did…and I still couldn’t see anything “wrong”.

    You didn’t define ‘menu’ **on a Restaurant site**…do you mean Navigation or the actual Bill of Fare?

    Oh and you didn’t define…’not working’ in your original question.

    If the Bill of Fare stacks in IE8…it **is** working as it’s clearly visible. If viewers **are** actually using IE8 how would they know the difference from a modern browser experience.

    By the way…the Bill of Fare is now stacking in Chrome…

    Sorry i’m still kinda new to this what do mean i didn’t define ‘menu’ on a restaurant site? When I change the **browser mode** to IE8 and then change the **document mode** to internet explorer 8 standards it doesn’t stack am I not doing that right? @paulie_d

    You have a restaurant that will, presumably, have a menu of food items they are offering (Bill of Fare).

    In HTML, the menu is the list of navigation links.

    On a site such at this we will assume you mean the second one.

    Unless you are specific about what the actual problem is such as ‘It stacks up and I want CCS3 transitions” we don’t know what it is you are asking.


    Now,out of the box IE8 doesn’t support the effects you previously had working in Chrome so basically you **can’t** get them to work in IE8 without a lot javascript work.

    Frankly, I wouldn’t bother.
