Assuming you’re working in ASP.Net, don’t worry – there’s a temporary fix for you. It will force the browser to view the page in IE7 emulation mode (as if IE8 were running in what it calls ‘Compatibility mode‘).

If your entire site looks bad, then you might think of adding this section to your web.config file, under the configuration/system.webServer section:

        <clear />
        <add name="X-UA-Compatible" value="IE=EmulateIE7" />

If it’s just a small number of pages, you can add a meta tag in your head section:

<meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=EmulateIE7" />
