I have stumbled on a little bit of an IE8 issue.
Working on a Government site, so I cannot provide you with a link to the site in question, but here’s another Gov’t site that is showing the problem:

IE8 will simply not display the Chinese Characters (2nd Nav item).
If I make IE8 go into IE7 mode, everything is great, but I’d prefer not to do this. Google searching has come up fruitless, so I thought I’d finally ask a question around here for once!
For those interested, this is the code you would use to force IE8 into rendering the page as if it were IE7:
Figured it out.
It actually has to do with your original installation of Windows (at least on the XP boxes I tested).
If the user has NOT installed a specific language pack, IE8 will not properly display the characters (even though IE6 and IE7 are fully capable without the language pack).
