Display Text in Div if IE8 Only


I've been trying to get my webpage to display Text to a div if it detects that the web browser is IE8.

My site is using php 5.4 as well as the jquery 1.11.3

I've tried many different variations with no luck.

Any guidance would be fantastic.

Many Thanks

Hi Ross,
Try this:

Use this HTML5 to declare your body tag:
<!--[if IE 8]> <body class="ie8"> <![endif]-->

Open in new window

Then use this jQuery/javascript to run any browser specific code:
   //Do IE 8 specific stuff 

Open in new window


if ($.browser.msie  && parseInt($.browser.version, 10) === 8) {
