Internet Explorer "In Dean's recent Internet Explorer 8 and Acid2: a Milestone post, he highlighted our responsibility to deliver both interoperability (web pages working well across different browsers) and backwards compatibility (web pages working well across different versions of IE). We need to do both, so that IE8 continues to work with the billions of pages on the web today that already work in IE6 and IE7 but also makes the development of the next billion pages (in an interoperable way) much easier. Continuing Dean's theme, I'd like to talk about some steps we are taking in IE8 to achieve these goals."

Wait... i have to add a tag to get IE8 following standards as expected with the doctype ?

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

EDIT - I suppose it is easier to add only one tag than doing many hack in your CSS...
