For it to work in IE8 you must use a strict doctype like:
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Strict//EN"
        "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-strict.dtd">
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">

Open in new window


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

Open in new window
