X-UA-Compatible META tag in Pega generated UI is still IE 5
A developer has noticed that Pega generated HTML contains the following
<meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=5">
Where did this come from?
Why is Pega using such an old standard?
Steps to Reproduce
You are seeing this due to installing the IE10/11 compatibility HFIXs mentioned here:
Prior to Pega 7, PRPC requires quirks mode to render properly. The purpose of the compatibility mode HFIXs is to instruct newer modern browsers to render our document in Quirks mode. Without this, the browser defaults to standards mode which can cause various UI issues.
