      Description

      Hi,

      I noticed documentation at docs.jboss.org doesn't render properly in IE8.

      How to reproduce it:
      Open this URL in IE8: http://docs.jboss.org/jbosstm/4.17.3.Final/guides/failure_recovery_guide/

      Expected behaviour:
      Documentation should be rendered

      Current behavour:
      Document is not rendered

      I noticed it's affecting multiple pages, not just this one. Therefore I assume there is a bug in a DocBook template.

          Thanks for the report but it depends on whether IE8 can be added to the upstream pressgang project. I know it renders fine on IE11 as that is what I have here. If you have a fix, please do consider signing our CLA and raising a PR over here: https://github.com/jbosstm/documentation otherwise I recommend you to try to get a change fixed in the upstream page generation tool.

          Hello Tom,

          Thank you for looking into this. I don't really have IE to my disposal at this moment.

          When I was reporting this issue 2 years ago I was doing on-site consultancy gig for a customer where IE8 was the allowed browser allowed Sadly it wasn't that uncommon rule for some organizations back then. I though you'd like to know your documentation wasn't usable in these environments.

          Hopefully silly rules regarding browsers are less common by now or at least the favour newer & more sane browsers now)

          Cheers,
          Jaromir

          Thanks Jaromir - it just landed on my desk now (I think it had been in a
          different Jira project), sorry for the delay in responding!
