HTTP 404 Not Found

Our IE8 users are getting a HTTP 404 Not Found when going to some pages off our one of our sites. I am the net admin, and did not write the sites. Here is a link.


Odd thing is the content is there, and shows up fine in virtually all other browsers besides IE8. However if I go into Internet Options > Advanced > and uncheck Show friendly HTML Error messages, it works fine.

One post suggested changing this line, however this has no affect.

<meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="chrome=1" />
<meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=EmulateIE7" />

Any feedback you may have to help convince the programmer that it isn't a "server" issue would be great.

Could there be an iframe or something else directly embedded in the form?  Fiddler is a great tool for resolving those kinds of requests as suggested by leakim971

Thanks to you both, fiddler rocks !!

It looks like there are a couple of missing files being referenced. I've forwarded them on to the developer. I am going to split the points as both of you were right on.
