Emulate IE6 with IE8
Hello,

We have a problem in displaying a web site with IE8.
Is it possible to emulate the use of IE6 when browsing to the web site with
IE8.

I find an article that describe how to change the application code but our
customer didn't want to do that:

<meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=EmulateIE6"/>

Please can you help me;

Best Regards.
Sonia.

Re: Emulate IE6 with IE8
Did you try the IE Tools>Compatibility View Settings?

Depends on what the issue is. If you just want to connection with an IE6
User-Agent and hope that the rendering works using either Quirks mode or IE7
or IE8 standards you could use the UAPick tool.

Re: Emulate IE6 with IE8
You can spoof IE7 (or IE6) User Agent strings to make a wepage or web-based
application (but not an installed application) "think" you're running IE7
(or IE6). See http://www.enhanceie.com/ua.aspx or
http://www.enhanceie.com/ietoys/uapick.asp
