    The JSLint.com page looks ok on the minority browsers, but it looks lousy on IE8. The vertical spacing is off, the fieldsets bleed, and the buttons are wrong.

      If you are at Microsoft, could you please ask the IE team to look into this?

      Thanks.

      ... Any reason you couldn t just add to your tag, and force it to render as if IE7?

        Any reason you couldn't just add '<meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=EmulateIE7" />' to your <head> tag, and force it to render as if IE7?

        Until IE7 disappears, you'll always have to hack/account for it, so why make it so you also have to account for IE8?
