Hello,

does anyone have any opinions on compatibility view.

I have used the code below to stop people viewing back versions in IE8. But it does not seem to work anyway!
<meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=IE8"" />

As i am working on a mac, it is hard to work out how a site will look in IE6, 7 and 8. Can anyone suggest how this can be achieved - with out a PC

I know it isn't ideal but www.browsershots.org

If you don't have multiple computers you can test the websites on, consider getting virtual computers, they do the same job.

If you can't do this either, you're on shaky ground.
Adobe has a tool that let's us compare, overlap etc.

Never liked the fact the browsershots has a queue going. I want instant gratification ;-)

Yes, totally agree. Especially if you have to make tweaks to layout it can be very frustrating.
