An expendable drop down menus works fine on Firefox and Google Chrome, but can't expend in IE 8 on a situation. And, a layout CSS code is broken in the old version IE. Any special tool to find and fix IE special problem?

Any special tool to find and fix IE special problem? Knowledge/Experience is the only "tool" to debug such cases. btw, can we have a link to your page?

You can check for validation (http://validator.w3.org/) which might show any typos/errors, although this is not IE specific it could help in identifying a problem with HTML/CSS..

IETester (http://www.my-debugbar.com/wiki/IETester/HomePage) is a good program which allows you to view sites on different IE versions from 5.5 - 9, so it could prove some use in this case.

I also believe there are possibly some "Live-Edit" add-ons for IE which allow you to edit the page on the fly, so it could help in a trial and error solution sort of way..

No tool can identify and fix errors in such a way, your best bet is a forum (by posting a link/HTML and CSS) or use of the mentioned tools and knowledge on HTML/CSS within different browsers to try and pinpoint the problem yourself.

Unless you give us the code, we can't help much more than what's already been said, so post away if needs be!
