    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.

    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.

    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
