Hi, I found the problem I had with IE9 and IE10 (I guess with IE8 is the same).
Your site does not look good when this mode is on “compatibility view”.
I modified two computers with IE9 and IE10 and now looks perfectly.
You could add to the new versions of the theme one FIX to be able to not work with compatibility view mode is active even in the browser?, I mention because by default with IE9 and IE10 is activated and thus avoid the users (which not usually technical) having to touch browser that option ….
I did not test it yet but you can try the suggested code here: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/6348959/how-to-disable-compatibility-view-in-ie
In header.php replace
<meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=10; IE=9; IE=8; IE=EDGE" />
Compatibility mode is not turned on by default and should only ever show up for users that have it turned on or if somehow IE has an error rendering your pages content.
You can also try this hack here: http://www.cfelements.com/2010/06/detecting-and-correcting-ie8-in.html
Maybe the code I posted above is not valid and the content attribute just supports one browser. Then IE=100 should overwrite all browsers up to v99 :)
<meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=100" />
