Maybe this http://code.google.com/p/html5shiv/ will help. My site (HTML5) doesnt work on IE8 and earlier. But works on FF

Most IE8 position and spacing issues can generally be solved by adding this to the head of the page:

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

Well it looks like IE8 does not like the font declarations and it end up using a bigger font.  It is inheriting the 1.4 line height from the body, so that may be messing up IE8 when you set the 40px font size.

Try getting rid of the line height and see if that straightens it out.

If you don't have chromeframe installed then adding
<meta content="IE=edge,chrome=1" http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" />
won't do anything except make Internet Explorer use it's most up to date rendering engine.

My understanding is when chromeframe is installed and you set chrome=1 then the google chrome rendering engine is used instead. The Chrome engine doesn't have the problem you are referencing so it appears to "fix" the problem.

In my experience most users have no idea what chromeframe is, but most tech-guys do... Check out info on chromeframe here: http://www.chromium.org/developers/how-tos/chrome-frame-getting-started
