Description

I hope I haven't missed an existing ticket, because this seems pretty serious.

Try visiting a site running Twenty Eleven (trunk) using IE8 (or even http://twentyelevendemo.wordpress.com/). IE8 doesn't know how to handle all those HTML5 tags (header/footer/nav etc). It just ignores them, and whatever content is inside them is rendered outside the tag, which warps all the styling. Stuff overflows all over the place. The entire footer is not visible at all.

As much as I'd like to ditch IE8, there are a whole lot of people out there who use it.

Sorry, it was my mistake. I was using IE9 in IE8 mode, and it seems that that doesn't trigger the conditional tags for IE8, so the HTML5 Javascript isn't loaded and everything is warped.
