Why does my page work in IE9's IE7 mode, but not in IE7 itself? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I recently went live with our new home page, after heavily testing it in each of IE9's browser and document modes. The site works in each mode, not to mention modern browsers. However, after it launched I got an email that said the site was very broken in IE7. I went to an abandoned machine and booted up Windows XP, started IE7, and loaded the page. To my horror, the layout was indeed broken!

    Why does my page not work in IE7, even though it works in IE7 mode in IE9? And what might be "wrong" with it?
