Force IE Compatability Mode

We were working on a site using TheProfessional theme from Elegant Themes and had a problem where the slider worked in IE8 but not in IE9,  it would show all the images one under another and not slide but it worked in compatability mode so researching it we found a great way in the .htaccess to force Compatability mode on in IE:

Add this to .htaccess file:

BrowserMatch MSIE best-standards-support
Header set X-UA-Compatible IE=8 env=best-standards-support

Worked like a charm for us.

IE Versions 0 IE Tester is a nice free app and the theme looks great now in IE7, 8 and 9. If your using something below that you really should be upgrading or at least installing a more current browser like Chrome, Firefox, Opera, Safari etc
