    Pages displays different on different systems


    I have a project in Visual Studio 2008, ASP.Net, 2.0.

    We are going from IE6 to IE8 and I'm making the changes for this move. I did all these changes by deploying the files to a test web server because I still had IE6 on my machine.

    When I publish to our web server the pages render like they should.

    I got IE8 last night so I figured I could just test it out on my box.

    When I run it off my box, the pages look all screwed up.

    I don't understand how they can look fine on the web server but not on my box. The same version of IE8 is installed on the test box I'm working with and my machine.

    Anyone ever encountered this or know of anything to check?

    If you have questions or need more info, ask.

    I suggest you use the built-in developer tools to confirm that the copy of IE on both machines are using the same rendering mode.

    Have you tried clearing the temporary Internet files?

    WOW thanks

    I found that the browser setting {Browser Mode:???} on my box was in "Internet Explorer 8" and the box I WAS using to test this stuff out is using "Internet Explorer 8 Compatibility View".

    So my next question is, if we are only using IE8, should these pages be seen in compatibility view or not? I'm going to read up on it but figured I'd ask your opinion.
