  • Hi,

    if you add the x-ua IE5.

    see HTML and DOM API changes list

    <aside> the Document Mode and Browser Mode menus have been removed from the IE11 Developer tool</aside>

    Of coarse there is no guarantee that IE5 quirks mode (aka non-standards) will be supported indefinitely. You should be moving your legacy markup to modern standards. Any new development should be to standards.

  • It seems MS will remove Quirks mode support from IE:

    http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ie/bg182625(v=vs.85).aspx

    Extract from the page:

    Starting with IE11, document modes are deprecated and should no longer be used, except on a temporary basis. Make sure to update sites that rely on legacy features and document modes to reflect modern standards.

    If you must target a specific document mode so that your site functions while you rework it to support modern standards and features, be aware that you're using a transitional feature, one that may not be available in future versions.
