I installed Tackle on a WinXP box for evaluation purposes. When I access the Tackle website using IE8, the menus show up as an empty white square.  Using Firefox the menus are displayed correctly.  What needs to be done to fix this?

I fixed the menu issue by added a meta tag in the MasterPage.master

<head runat="server">
    <meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=EmulateIE7" />
    <title>Tackle Web Site - Developed by MGS TnT</title>
    <link href="Tackle.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />

This requests IE8 to render as IE7
