IE8: Always use the IE7 Standards

Now IE8 is released, you might see your oh-so-beautiful design go crazy. But don't panic, there is a solution.

Microsoft did a good job at making IE8 compatible with older standards.

If you include this meta tag in the head section of your page, IE8 will always try to render the page using the IE7 Standards.

You can check the Document Mode using the IE Developer Tools.

More documentation can be found on MSDN.
