IE7-compatibility mode and dojo

Until a few days ago we have been running our website in IE7-compatibility mode. After extensive testing, we finally removed that limitation.

Today a couple of users, including one internal user, reported that there is a problem with a dojo dialog box that is used to capture input and save it via ajax. I reverted to IE7-compatibility mode and it fixed the problem. Please note that the problem does not affect all users. In particular, I cannot reproduce the problem on my system.

I am wondering if there is a known issue with dojo. We are running version 1.1.1.11887.

We have been in the process of gradually replacing dojo, so if it is something related to dojo, it will cause us to move forward with that replacement in this specific area.

My guess is that it's more likely related to CSS and how different browsers render things.  IE8 changed some of the default behvior with divs that wrap to make them more W3C compatible.  

I've had issues upgrading from IE7 to 8 in some places where I had to specificy a height or put an   in order to keep the height of elements looking the way I wanted them to.

Thanks for your comment. However, it gives me nothing to grad on to as far as my situation.

We are moving ahead gradually with replacing dojo. That will probably solve it.

Will work, but was looking for something more immediate.
