I am afraid couldn't understand you. Is there any tag that can force not users to use IE8 without compatibility mode?

How can I do that on clients browsers?
There must be some other way?

cpanel is trolling and will soon be deleted, please ignore him.

I'm afraid there is no tag that prevents CM, only a tag to enforce it. Please try the site in a real IE7 and/or IE6 browser to see if the problem persists (I can't do that on this computer due to company restrictions, sorry). If the page views fine there, I actually wouldn't worry about it.

To troubleshoot, start with checking your "IF IE"-like values in the <head> and any IE only-values in your stylesheet. These are often neglected when further modifying the markup after their initial implementation.

I will be able to assist further if needed later today.

Thank you very much, I checked it on IE7 nad IE6 and it seems I have some problems, I will use IF statements in my code. That will limit down the browsers showing false design.
