IE8 bug in Seam 2

There seem to be a problem with IE8 and Seam applications. We are running Seam 2.1, JSF 1.2 and Facelets, and I cannot say for sure where the bug is. For all I know its a bug with IE8.

There seem to be problems when creating long-running conversations. In link using IE8 the cid doesnt appear. Somehow it is stripped or doesn't render correctly, and it causes some strange behaviour.
When trying to create a long running conversation by pushing an edit link for instance, we get a "Your session has timeout" exception.

We fixed this IE8 problem by telling Internet Explorer to emulate IE7 in pages.xml
<page view-id="*">
<header name="X-UA-Compatible">IE=EmulateIE7</header>

I suggest you do the same until the bug is identified and fixed.

Hi Shervin,

Good post. I have used the page elemented suggested but it is not identifying header tag with error Invalid content was found starting with element 'header'.

Could you say what is the xsd you used.
