How to Hide Compatibility View in Internet Explorer 8 for Your Site

If you have a Web site that you have througly tested and it works in Internet Explorer 8 Beta 2 without Compatibility View turned on, hopefully it will also work well in the final release of Internet Explorer 8. If you want to hide the Compatibility View in the browser (displayed as a "broken document" icon, to the left of the address bar) you would need to add a Meta tag to your Web site master pages and/or define a custom HTTP header for all the Web site from within Internet Information Services (IIS).

The first is the easiest way for a developer, as it doesn’t require any administrative work: you just need to add this Meta tag to your pages, in the <head> tag before referencing other files (such as stylesheets or other external resources):

<meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=8" />
