  • Hi,

    sorry no....

    You should however use GPO to force the "Include updated website lists from Microsoft" option checked... It contains lists of public domains and their default document and browser modes and ModernIE Flash support.

    for intranet sites either add the appropriate x-ua value in the head or in the response header.

    see Understanding compatibility view

    and use GPO to enforce that the user setting (Tools>Compatibility View>"Display intranet sites in Compatibility View") and disable user access to change the Intranet zones' settings on the security tab and Compatibility view settings dialog.

    In IE10 there is also a Quirks Mode Policy list in GPO.... add legacy intranet domains to this list that are required to be rendered in IE5 Quirks mode. these may be pages that do not have a valid document type declaration and are using xml data-islands or the xml namespace (viz: <! xml.....>)
