    I'm running a web-site that when in IE uses IE9 standards mode. This web site uses a RadSplitter to display external content in a RadPane.

    When showing a page in the RadPane that requires IE7 compatibility mode IE still seems to render in IE 9 standards mode causing rendering defects.

    Opening a new tab and pasting in the exact same URL the page is rendered flawless in IE7 compatibility mode as long as it runs outside of the RadPane.

    Is this a shortcoming of IE 9 (cannot display mixed standardsmode and compatibility mode in iframes on the same page) or is there something with RadPane I need to do?

    Hi Paal,

    This problem is not related to RadPane but is a standard browser behavior.

    It is not possible to dynamically add or change the meta tag that is forcing different version of InternetExplorer. You will observe the same behavior if you load the external page in a standard <iframe> element.

    All the best,
