    Hi there,

    I’m a bit puzzled by IE8’s compatibility mode. I’ve got some animated div’s on a page, with rounded corners – both of which are implemented using jQuery. It works in IE8, but only when compatibility mode is switched on. And in Firefox and Safari it works totally fine. IE6 is a whole other kettle of fish! (good old Mircosoft – they know how to keep us on our toes) :|

    So what exactly is compatibility mode? And how come it only lets my jQuery stuff work when it’s switched on?



    Hi Owen,
    Here is link to the IE8 Blog that explains in detail what Compatibility View is, and also includes information specific to developers: … d=ie8_sm_a

    If you still find yourself seeking help with your code the MSDN Internet Explorer Web Developer Forum is a great resource for discussing HTML, CSS and Script specific to Internet Explorer. … d=ie8_sm_a
