I have an old site that I am updating and there are 2 dreamweaver templates (one for home page and one for all other pages) that control all the pages. The top of both templates is identical and looks like this
Code:
<!DOCTYPE html>
<!--[if lt IE 7 ]><html class="ie ie6" lang="en"> <![endif]-->
<!--[if IE 7 ]><html class="ie ie7" lang="en"> <![endif]-->
<!--[if IE 8 ]><html class="ie ie8" lang="en"> <![endif]-->
<!--[if (gte IE 9)|!(IE)]><!--><html lang="en"> <!--<![endif]-->
<head>
<meta charset="utf-8">
<!-- TemplateBeginEditable name="doctitle" -->
<title>Untitled Document</title>
<!-- TemplateEndEditable -->
<!-- TemplateBeginEditable name="MetaTags" -->
<meta name="description" content="" />
<meta name="keywords" content="" />
<meta name="robots" content="index,follow,archive" />
<!-- TemplateEndEditable -->

<meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1, maximum-scale=1">
However when produce any pages and view them in IE7 and view the source the home page code looks like this
Code:
<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="en"><!-- InstanceBegin template="/Templates/2014-home-page.dwt.asp" codeOutsideHTMLIsLocked="false" --> <!--<![endif]-->
<head>
<meta charset="utf-8">
<!-- InstanceBeginEditable name="doctitle" -->
<title>Untitled Document</title>
<!-- InstanceEndEditable -->
<!-- InstanceBeginEditable name="MetaTags" -->
<meta name="description" content="" />
<meta name="keywords" content="" />
<meta name="robots" content="index,follow,archive" />
<!-- InstanceEndEditable -->
Where as the lower level pages include all the IE related comments around the html tag
Code:
<!DOCTYPE html>
<!--[if lt IE 7 ]><html class="ie ie6" lang="en"> <![endif]-->
<!--[if IE 7 ]><html class="ie ie7" lang="en"> <![endif]-->
<!--[if IE 8 ]><html class="ie ie8" lang="en"> <![endif]-->
<!--[if (gte IE 9)|!(IE)]><!--><html lang="en"><!-- InstanceBegin template="/Templates/2014-text-page.dwt.asp" codeOutsideHTMLIsLocked="false" --> <!--<![endif]-->
<head>
<meta charset="utf-8">
<!-- InstanceBeginEditable name="doctitle" -->
<title>Untitled Document</title>
<!-- InstanceEndEditable -->
<!-- InstanceBeginEditable name="MetaTags" -->
<meta name="Description" content="" />
<meta name="Keywords" content="" />
<meta name="robots" content="index,follow,archive" />
<!-- InstanceEndEditable -->
Has anybody come across this issue before and can advise as to a solution?
