    Compatibility View is in fact enabled by default for anything in the Local Intranet zone, so you should be OK assuming Serco is hosted onsite (I've never used it so don't know).

    We've been using IE8 and ePortal together since September 09 and so far haven't encountered any issues....

    (Now crossing all fingers and toes to keep it that way)

    I've been using the combination on my machine here and at my last school for about 9 months and never seen anything, but then I never have to actually use ePortal - I've always held back just in case there's something I've not seen before. Now they officially support it, though, I can roll out IE8 (will try for the child-friendly version) and know that Serco support can't blame that for any problems we might be having

    Maybe we all should do that and then they may provide...
    Got a response...

    Thank you for the enquiry. Microsoft are currently developing a solution
    that will allow the browser to be deployed to multiple machines. This
    should be available in the near future. As soon as I have further
    details I will let you know.

    Good stuff, although I'm wondering if we can just build an MSI with IEAK8 based on this version of the browser...
