Thought I’d reach out and see if any of you have any ideas on this. On any of the single "video" pages on this site, like this:

If you view it in IE 8, it just continuously loads seemingly blank content expanding the site horizontally forever. It’s very bizarre. If you click the "compatibility view" button it doesn’t do it, and it works in literally any other browser.
It has something to do with the comments area, as if I remove that from the template it loads fine.
The page validates perfectly as well.

Though how they have the gall to sayQuote:These short-term fixes are recommended only for quick, temporary use. Eventually you should modify your Web site so that it sends standards-based code to Windows Internet Explorer 8 and above
beggars belief!! :lol:# May 12, 2009 at 11:44 am"chriscoyier" wrote:It IS standards-based. Fully-validating, that’s what so darn infuriating.

Not that this is the proper place for this discussion, but that’s really not a good idea. In a year when everyone uses IE8 (and today while 25%+ still use IE6) all the products you create will be broken.# May 12, 2009 at 4:33 pmQuote:Not that this is the proper place for this discussion, but that’s really not a good idea.

Our site metrics don’t support those figures. IE6 has slowly been trending down at 17% while IE8 is hovering at just below 6%. IE7 represents a whopping 75% of the traffic, so for us, that’s the only IE player we worry about at the moment. (We received over 100K visits from May 11 to April 11.) Besides, IT won’t install IE8 yet for us to test against ‘cuz of our wonky desktop environment. You’d at least like to think that IE8 should render better than IE6…but that’s a long shot. ;)
