IE8 and CSS Troubles

This post is to store a little bit of information I found that relates to Internet Explorer 8 and CSS.  Like many, doing CSS for three browsers can be a headache, especially with IE not wanting to play.

Well it turns out it can play well, you just have to tell it to with a simple meta tag.  I really wish I could remember the URL I found this information on originally but I am sorry I cannot. Trust me, this is an easy one to forget so it goes here in my E-Brain.

Here is the meta tag you will need to use.  I have used it in a .NET master page that other master pages used and it still worked.

<meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=8"/>
