Emulate IE7 meta tag does not work starting in ie8 rc1
When testing with IE8 beta 2, i was using the the following well-documented
meta tag to emulate ie7:

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

This worked fairly well (i.e. - not 100% emulation), but after 'upgrading'
to IE8 RC1, that tag no longer works. The only way i can get emulation to
work now is if i add my site to the Compatability view list, but obviously
that is not a solution for end-users of my site.

Why did this stop working?
