This will be fixed in the next build, with one exception: the layout will be slightly different in IE8/Compatability mode in that there may be no space between the box at the button, but all other browsers will render this 10px gap correctly.

This is a compromise in that it's 98% correct in IE8, looks fine, works fine, but differs visually slightly...and doesn't involve lots of extra CSS for a 100% identical layout, given all other browsers handle this situation fine.


I can definitely repro in IE9 when in IE8 render mode (press f12)
