IE 8 Compatibility View

As a UNIX / Linux bigot, I don’t use Internet Explorer much. As a web developer, I need to test as many browsers as possible. The matrix for all the possible browser / version combinations is pretty daunting already, and adding the IE 8 compatibility view to the mix doesn’t help. If your customer complains of hosed web pages, check the configuration under Tools -> Compatibility View Settings, and have him / her turn off all the check boxes at the bottom of the form.
