I am working on an XHTML client site that was written in iWeb many years ago and I am trying to get the page to automatically load in compatibility mode for IE8 instead of IE9 but compatibility mode never turns on and as a result no one is able to see the site slideshows or images on the website when the visitors use IE9. I have tried changing the code to include <meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=EmulateIE7" /> but the code will not automatically turn on compatibility mode.

That was exactly what I needed. Thank you. In case anyone else has this issue, you need to place the tag right behind the header in all of your pages. If the tag is not the first thing written, then the page will finalize before the tag is ever implemented.
