Michael Jackson, 50, dies after suffering a cardiac arrest

Still hard to believe this, but I learnt this evening that Michael Jackson has died! First Farrah and now Michael on the same day. This is a sad day.

Whatever has been said and thought about Michael over the last few years, no one can deny his music has touched us all in some way.

From me, I can only say "Thank you Michael, for the great music you gave us all for many years".

Farrah Fawcett, 62, dies after 3 year battle with cancer

Today, I am shocked and sad to learn that Farrah Fawcett has died after a 3-year long battle with cancer.

Rest in peace Farrah.

IE8 and IE7 compatibility mode

If you are experiencing problems with IE8 rendering a website correctly, then you may find that forcing the browser to use IE7 compatibility mode may be the solution.

I recently tried this on a website and it works; simply add the following code into the header:

meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=EmulateIE7"

NB. the opening < and the closing /> have been removed to allow posting.

This code will force IE8 to run in IE7 mode even if the browser is set to run in IE8 Standards mode.
