I have a HTML5 Doctype declaration and an IE8 Emulator but i am running in to problems on windows xp that is using windows 7
I cant click on the website links or navigate around on the website. I thought it was the colorbox overlay at first causing issues but this is not the case otherwise it would have caused issues in IE7 on windows 7
Here is the declaration
<meta http-equiv="x-ua-compatible" content="IE=EmulateIE8" >
Is there someway of detecting the OS the user is using and depending on that maybe change the doctype or is that just a long shot?
Has anyone else had issues with this sort of problem before?
If posted in the wrong section can the admin/mod move to the correct section. Thanks

I have sorted the problem - it was a stylesheet for IE7 only problem
Full scale background
filter: progid:DXImageTransform.Microsoft.AlphaImageLoader(src='/assets/img/background.jpg', sizingMethod='scale');
-ms-filter: "progid:DXImageTransform.Microsoft.AlphaImageLoader(src='/assets/img/background.jpg', sizingMethod='scale')";

Glad you sorted it.
The IE alpha image loader filter has many bugs and behaviours and is best avoided if possible.
