Browser compatibility issue?

Internet Explorer is giving me fits!

I'm working on a web site using ASP.NET, with VB.NET code-behind.  I'm also using jQuery's AutoComplete to accommodate a street name look-up.  This portion of the form performs as expected.

The problem is a command button - but only in IE8.  In Fire Fox, Opera, Chrome and Safari, the command button correctly invokes the code-behind, but IE8 just sits there and waits for me to click the button again.

The button is defined as:
<asp:Button ID="cmdDisplay" runat="server" Text="Search" />

We've tried every compatibility and security setting we can find in IE, but it didn't help.  I've even tried stripping out css and javascript references, but didn't get any joy there either.

Any ideas on what might be causing IE to misbehave?

Found it!  Or rather W3C's validation site found it.

They suggested three changes: replace an ampersand in the page's title; repair a font-family statement; and add an [i]alt[/i] tag to an image.

After making those three changes, I now have a page that works in IE!
