Glad to be of assistance.

That's quite a high % of IE8 users based on average polling of Browser Stats (3-5%)...but these will always vary greatly depending on audience (business vs. consumer).

http://marketshare.h...et Explorer 8.0



I've been watching the clime closely on some of the major sites that post these stats and of course on my site. ;)

I just wish everyone who is still using IE6 would upgrade (25-30%)...make my life a lot easier and I'm sure the same for all designers/developers. :cool:

Ok, I know this is an old topic, but I think it would be valid to update this info to the latest issues with IE9.
Ive got a problem with my FAQ page in that unless IE is in Document Mode: "IE9 standards"
The page wont work and the Accordion is just expanded.
Its a version of the Cart Tuning FAQ addon.
Ive read at StackOverflow that to set the document typoe to the latest standard, one needs to include just after the <head> tag in the /customer/index.tpl file
<meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=Edge"/>
I am wondering if the should be used instead:
<meta http-equiv="x-ua-compatible" content="IE=9">
Thats what Ive done, but cant really test it as my IE now seems to be forced into whatever mode is set by the "IE Web Developer Tools" addin for IE9
Im hoping that someone in the know can advise how to force the visitors IE browser into IE9 standards mode automatically when the page is loaded.
According to this microsoft guide all one needs to do is make the doctype:
[color=blue]<![/color][color=#A31515]DOCTYPE[/color] [color=red]html[/color][color=blue]>[/color]
but Im reluvctant to change it from the existing
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">

It would be good to have some updated and definitive instruction from the CS CART TEAM regarding this issue.
Thanks in advance.
