Force MS Internet Explorer into a specific version
If you have a legacy website that needs to run as rendered by a previous Internet Explorer version, or want a site to always be rendered in the latest version rather than compatibility mode, you can add a META tag in the HEAD of your HTML.
The META tag specifies a numeric value and the browser will display the page in the closes version it has to this.
For example if you specify a value of
100 then Internet Explorer 8 will not fall back to version 7 standards.
The META tag to add to a page is:
<meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=100" />
