Internet Explorer 8 may display some interface elements like side boxes, buttons, etc. incorrectly. To fix this:

  1. Open the index.tpl file located in the skins/[CUSTOMER_ACTIVE_SKIN]/customer directory of your CS-Cart installation, where [CUSTOMER_ACTIVE_SKIN] is an active skin of your storefront.
  2. Replace the following piece of the code:
    <!--[if IE]>
    <link href="{$skin_dir}/styles_ie.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />

    with this one:
    <!--[if lte IE 7]>
    <link href="{$skin_dir}/styles_ie.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />
  3. Save the file for changes to take affect.
  4. Make sure all elements are displayed correctly in Internet Explorer 8 now.
