IE11 Compatibility Issue

Last Modified: 2014-06-24
I have a legacy website which works only in IE9 and below and for IE 10 the compatibility mode worked fine.

Now in IE11 to get to the compatibility mode I tried F12-> Emulation and in the "Document mode" option and chose the option 8 but the website totally collapses.

But the website works perfectly on IE-8 but when the same site in IE-11 and the Document mode is 8 why does the website collapse.

Or is there any other way to set compatibility mode.

I even tried placing the meta tag in head section for the jsp pages but still did not work.
<meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=8"/>
