    Good day,

    There is an issue when we're trying to build RadHtmlChart in IE8 having rotated labels (of xAxis or yAxix).
    Font of labels is Italic in this case and there is no posibility to fix it by changing the font family, size or text decoration.
    To see the issue open your demo page
    in ie8 mode (see attached)

    Could you please provide any solution to sort this out?

    Best regards,

    Hello Alex,

    I have already replayed to your support ticket, so I am pasting my answer below for the community:

    Note that we support browsers listed in Browser Support help article only in their standards mode, which means the Compatibility View mode is not supported. That is why some issue like the mentioned one may arise in this mode.

    What I can suggest you is to use the following meta tag, that disable the compatibility view:
    <meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=9; IE=8; IE=7; IE=EDGE" />
    More information on the matter is available in this forum thread and this blog post.
