IE8 isn't supported any longer (we support the latest 2 versions of an major browser).

Our goal for old browsers is that the site renders and is usable, but does not need to look perfect. Dropping IE8 support allows us to clean up a whole sloth of IE-specific hacks in layout and CSS rules (ever wonder why everything's floated? yeah no inline-block in older IE versions).

We want IE8 to be usable, but minor rendering bugs (especially in minority cases like this) will no longer be fixed.
