First off, it REALLY matters what mode you are in.
Why IExpando.AddMethod was not called?
In IE8, there are 3 (THREE) modes..
Future of Internet Explorer [closed]
- IE5 Quirks - your page has no doctype, page renders like IE5 did
- IE 7 Standards Mode - you have a doctype, but either opted out of IE8 standards mode, or are running on localhost, or in "Compatibility Mode"
- IE 8 Standards Mode - you have a doctype, and are on the INTRANET (default mode)
How to determine if a textbox in a windows form has focus
However, if like the majority, you are running with a doctype set, and thus in IE8 Standards mode, the following changes have occurred..
margin-top property in CSS
1.) document.getElementById( id ); //now only returns the CORRECT matches!
There has also been a bunch of CSS 2.1 fixes, so things that rendered weird before, or needed hacks, should be much better.
3.) .getAttribute( name ); //returns the CORRECT value for the given attribute! 4.) .setAttribute( name, value ); //actually SETS the name/value CORRECTLY (no more cAmElCaSe crud)! 5.) CSS Expressions are NO LONGER allowed (deprecated) 6.) Operation Aborted errors will still be thrown (in some cases) however the cases are fewer, and the error won't kill the entire page/DOM 7.) The attributes array on elements should (from the RC build onwards) be correct in terms of contents, have a length, etc.
8.) Button elements now submit the contents of the value attribute, NOT the HTML contents of the Button Tag
(see below for details on alpha/transparency - there's been big changes). See the IE Blog for details.. Also see Web Bug Track for fine grained details on Bugs, Fixes for IE8 (and all other browsers). SVG, rounded corners, ECMAScript based Event Listeners, Better Form Element design/events etc.
are still missing.. PS If you have specific issues, let us know and we'll help hunt them down for you.
window.open(); in IE8 Partner Release is sometimes failing "claiming" that the target url is not available (quirky, hard to reproduce)
I kid you not.
