Possible bug: X-UA-Compatible differs from Compatibility View
Just encountered a behaviour in IE8 that could be considered a bug.

I've got a page which renders X (to make it abstract) in IE8 on one PC and
renders Y on another PC.
The page contains the X-UA-Compatible tag, so you would think that it's not
an IE8 problem, but something different.
After digging - the website was in the Compatibilty View list on one PC and
not on the other.
Adding the X-UA-Compatible tag to the page (and the whole site actually)
hides the button to turn on/off the Compatibility View next to the refresh
button. It has to be done through the menu, but no normal user does that I
guess, only developers.
So if you turned on Compatibility View before the meta tag was added, you
get different rendering compared to never having turned on Compatibility View.

I was to believe that the meta tag forced the Compatibility View, but
apparently it does something else here.

Hi deef,

It also depends on the DocType schema chosen by the web developers.

The X-UA flag can also be set in the response headers. Also see
"Automatically recover from rendering errors with Compatibility View" on the
Advanced tab of Internet Options.

Regards.
