IE8 Issue?

I am running a sql server/asp classic site with css.  I have some users that are having  trouble opening pages in IE8.  Does anyone know of an issue that might cause this?  I am hosting it on 2003 Server.

Have you had the users try compatabilty view?

I have a few sites I visit that need this.  I think they have corrected it for compatability, but the HP support sitre used to render very smay unreadable text.  Once you would click the compatability button, blammo, it would look perfect.

This only happens at a small school on their newer computers.  Would there be anything in their set up that may be causing this?

Compatability view is an option and can be turned off during the install of ie8.

ok but my site is an asp/css/html site.  Why would it work in all browsers except IE8?

Have you tried it (Compatibility View)?

IE8 does not render sites the same way as IE7 and earlier IE products, as well as other browsers.  As a site developer, you can add some meta info to your site's header to help...although it is not perfect for sure. Look here... http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc288325(VS.85).aspx
and here is some more info
