Re: Bad Web Page Render in IE7
Dear Leonard (and Steve),
Shouldn't Internet Explorer's Compatibility View fix problems like this? I
know the answer to that: Yes -- In a perfect world. In the real world,
however, more often than not, Compatibility View makes no difference,
Should Internet standards conform to Microsoft; or should Microsoft conform
to Internet standards? At the very least, Compatibilty View should do what
it's supposed to do. I have a similar problem with IE v8.0 and
moving/repositioning Facebook Boxes (which I posted to this group).
Compatibility View did nothing to improve the situation.
