You wont see it becuase we add a meta-tag. This bug is to remove the meta tag.

For whatever reason the site will always render in compat mode in IE which breaks things. so we added this meta tag https://github.com/NuGet/NuGetGallery/blob/master/Website/Views/Shared/Layout.cshtml#L6 to force IE not to render in compat mode. The Goal of this issue is to figure out why IE wants to do this and fix it so we can remove the compact meta tag as it is not valid HTML.

Not really a high priority. We set the meta tag to force standards mode and I don't see how that hurts.
