IE 8 beta 1 is out and we need to ensure that Dojo works in it and can take advantage of things like querySelectorAll and DOM Storage.

I'm not sure what this task even entails but here are a few things to think about.


dojo.isIE and also the CSS flags dijit applies to <body> probably need to differentiate between:

  1. IE6 quirks mode
  2. IE6 standards mode
  3. IE7 quirks mode
  4. IE7 standards mode
  5. IE8 quirks mode (compatible w/IE6 quirks mode) (can this just mimic #3/#1? although the fact the we differentiate between #3 and #1 already suggests no)
  6. IE8: IE7 standards mode compatibility mode (can this just mimic #4?)
  7. IE8: standards mode

The last three are the new ones.

CSS hacks:

Currently the dijit themes have some code like #display: foo to only run on IE but that may need to change to be more specific, so it doesn't trigger on IE8.


I'd hate to generate more test files but should be testing IE8 in all three modes (quirks mode, IE7 standards compatibility, and IE8 standards mode)

Milestone: 1.21.3

As per today's dojo meeting, we are predicting IE8 at end of summer and thus this ticket can wait until the 1.3 release. In any case need to wait for IE8 beta2 before we start working on this, because IE8 beta2 will have a lot of JS changes.

this ticket has probably outlived its usefulness. Shall we close and track new issues individually?
