I used:

table-layout: fixed

Open in new window

property in a Table but it works on IE 9.0 and doesn't work on IE 8.0 and other earlier versions.

What is the alternative to achieve the same thing which works on IE 8.0?

For it to work in IE8 you must use a strict doctype like:
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Strict//EN"
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">

Open in new window

<!doctype html>
<html  lang="en">
    <meta charset="utf-8">
    <meta content="IE=edge,chrome=1" />

Open in new window
