css not getting applied in IE 8.0

My website URL is  http://www.practicelifeintheuktest.co.uk/Home.aspx
The css styles are getting applied on IE 9.0, firefox, chrome but not on IE 8.0. My css are linked in headers like this
<link type="text/css" rel="stylesheet" media="all" href="CSS/styles.css" />
<link type="text/css" rel="stylesheet" media="all" href="CSS/ac.css" />

I have attached a screenshot how my home page looks in IE 8.0. Any ideas why and how can we fix it?

thanks My home page in IE 8.0

You appear to be using a HTML 5 <header> tag in a XHTML 1.0 document.

A quick search revealed the below link:

To add to what Rouneh10 said, IE versions before 9 and Firefox versions before 3 need some help to be able to recognize HTML5 elements (and the styles applied to them).

thanks for the comments

http://www.nickyeoman.com/blog/html/118-html5-tags-in-ie8  has helped to some extent but still couple of controls e.g. ("ctl00_ContentPlaceHolder1_RadButton2_input) on the page are not rendering properly. Any ideas about them?

You might want to consider using a reset stylesheet to reduce differences in rendering elements for different browsers.
