I inherited responsiblity for a website. It was built with classic ASP and I don't really know it, but I can modify / manipulate for the simple tasks. Recently I discovered the site, built in 2008-2009, is quirking with IE 7 / 8/ 9. Even though there is a <!DOCTYPE> declared. But the original company built it with an ASP include and snippet before the <!DOCTYPE>. I can pull these snippets, but then their action fails.
Where is best place to put these action?
(see below first ~12 lines)
My ideas: in head after <meta> before <link ... Or might it be better at the bottom of page like scripts? Another location?
How the page begins presently (and breaks IE )
<!-- 'default to order tab or not -->
Dim tab1, tab5, switchtabs
switchtabs = Trim(request.querystring("o"))
if isnumeric(switchtabs) then
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8" />
