Internet Explorer 8 Website Display Issue

Last Modified: 2012-05-11

  I have a small website for a rural hospital in Georgia that has an issue displaying the dropdown menus in IE8 (webpage opens up to all dropdowns being in extended position), this can be corrected by running IE8 in compatibility mode but most users in community aren't aware of this feature.  Does anyone know of a quick fix that would allow for dropdowns to open properly in IE8 by forcing the browser to run in compatibility mode when viewing the hospital webpage.
