Default IE 8 Compatibility

Hi
is there a simple way to make my web site(s) compatible with IE8 without the user having to click the compatibility button in their browser?
I have tried using the statements c) and d) at
http://www.aggiorno.com/blog/post/How-to-make-my-web-pages-Internet-Explorer-8-compatible.aspx

in the <head> section of my master page but they do not seem to make any difference?

Any thoughts please?

What is the DOCTYPE you are using for your pages right now?

Hmm....

<meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE-7" /> should work.
