Re: Can I check what causes the Compatibility View mode?
In general: Internet Explorer is trying to become a more
standards-compliant browser. This can cause web pages coded for earlier,
more proprietary versions of IE to break. To help prevent this from
happening, IE 8 has a rendering mode euphemistically named Compatibility
View. (A better term would be "Incompatibility View.") Update your page
to a more standards-compliant code to avoid Compatibilty View.
