While building a new website I stumbled upon a problem with the ASP.NET Menu Control. In all browsers, except IE8 the control works just fine. But in IE8 the dynamic parts of the menu are generated as blanks. Some investigation on the net learned me that this in normal behaviour build into IE8 by Microsoft. (????) There seems to be a problem with compatibility. luckily the solution is fairly simple. just make sure that your page(s) get rendered in IE7 compatibility mode. To do this add the following line of code to the xhtml head element:

<meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=EmulateIE7" > Posted on Monday, June 15, 2009 7:40 AM ASP.NET | Back to top

I agree. I also experienced some compatibility problems in IE8. Thanks to your tip. I didn't know that I should use my IE7 compatibility mode to solve it.
