Yep, I am so not looking forward to IE8. On one hand, it's great that they are actually intending to enforce compliance with HTML standards. On the other hand, I have a pretty big application portfolio that, if I were to guess, is not going to play well with IE8 when the compliance mode is enabled. I'm sure we'll be expected to comply; our customers are likely to adopt IE8, and I doubt that solutions such as "turn off standards compliance" will be well received! And I don't think my development staff is capable of fixing it all, frankly. Troubled waters ahead for Vulcan's IT shop.
