    Hello all,

    I am building a site based on the Incarnation theme.
    During testing we found out that the home page is not properly shown in Internet Explorer 8.
    I am using the default clouds-background, this is the only thing which is shown.

    Does someone have some tips/hints to find out what it could be?

    Thanks in advance :-)

    Hello All,

    I Finally found what is happening.
    The template forces Internet Explorer 9 and lower into quirks mode, which results in only showing the background.
    When IE is running into standard IE mode then the template works fine.

    To solve this I added the line:
    <meta http-equiv=”X-UA-Compatible” content=”IE=edge” />
    between the <head> tags of the template.
