This is what I got when I browsed Neowin's mobile front page earlier this morning. What happened? (I figured that this is a different kind of mobile site problem.)

Now this is the only thing that changed on mobile this morning (still ranting about the other thread here). I had to remove the compatibility mode for wp8, but will look into fixing this for wp7 users. Seems neowin is on a compatibility view list, so its forcing the site to render in ie7 mode. Thus that happens

Yep, I can confirm this. I busted out the good ol' WP7.5 Trophy, and Neowin looked just like that on the device. Works fine on Galaxy Nexus running JB 4.1.2

<meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=edge" />, anyone?

(Or setting the server to send out the equivalent HTTP header)

Or maybe <meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=EmulateIE9" />

Yes, I had to remove this. We'll have to add it for wp7 users tho it seems. Stupid ms :( only does this on the neowin.net domain

Should be fixed now. Will most likely be broken when 7.8 comes out, so will worry about that then.
