Working in IE8

close

Warning: This post was published more than 5 years ago.

I keep old posts on the site because sometimes it's interesting to read old content. Not everything that is old is bad. Also, I think people might be interested to track how my views have changed over time: for example, how my strident teenage views have mellowed and matured!

But given the age of this post, please bear in mind:

  • My views might have changed in the 5 years since I wrote this post.
  • This post might use language in ways which I would now consider inappropriate or offensive.
  • Factual information might be outdated.
  • Links might be broken; embedded material might not appear properly.

Many thanks for your understanding.

Those of you unfortunate enough to use Internet Explorer 8 as your main browser may have noticed that the site’s homepage had fallen apart. As a non-user, I hadn’t noticed until I tried to access the site on my parents’ computer.

It turns out that a single misplaced meta tag made the whole homepage screw up. I’ve fixed it now. The site still doesn’t look great in IE8: there are no rounded corners thanks to incompatibility with that bit of CSS, for example. I’d recommend switching to something a little more up-to-date, like Chrome.
