heh, not really an answer to your question but if it did blow up in IE8 that might be a good way to thin out the herd so-to-speak =)
I did however notice one issue I had even with IE10 where some of my images didn’t show up. Looking via the inspector, (I hate IE’s inspector tool btw) I found that images had inline height and width with “auto” values which I guess IE doesn’t like. I had to go back into webflow, choose the image properties (not the style rules) and where the values were “auto” for both width and height…I had to highlight the word “auto” and hit delete on the keyboard. They repopulated with “auto” but after republishing the inline width/height on images didn’t show up in IE anymore. Strange behavior, not sure if this has happened to anyone else though.
