Unline IE6 and IE7 now we've got absolutely useless modal dialogs. Well, for
most corporate systems where modal dialogs are used to display catalogs,
address books, and other forms with self-submit/refresh functions. IE8
doesn't allow to submit a form inside modal dialog into itself. I.e. to
refresh the content. Instead, a new window always opens. In the past there
was a "base target=_self" workaround, but now it's gone.
Sad to see such important feature gets crappy and nobody cares.
I had to suggest to one of my corporate client forget about MS8 for a year
