Internet Explorer 8 Beta 2 and TTD compatibility

Have found that IE8 Beta 2 has some compatibility issues with the TTD site.
The most noticeable is that the drop down menus, particularly Search, usually fail to appear.

However, IE8 does have a Compatibility View tool situated next to the Address Bar. This switches IE into IE7 emualtion mode. TTD site works fine then (hooray!).

See http://support.microsoft.com/kb/956197/

MS state in http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/libr...25(VS.85).aspx that "Internet Explorer 8 more closely supports industry standards than any previous version of the browser. Consequently, sites designed for older versions of the browser may not display as intended." There is a site-level fix in this article which is worth considering.

Ah well. Another argument for Firefox/Chrome/whatever, perhaps?
