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 :-)

If you want to access a working page:
Please try re-installing the theme via FTP and check if that fixes the issue

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.
