    I have the same problem, with the navigation on IE8 (and older).
    I am working on a child-theme, but I have the same problem if I switch back to Groundwork.

    Here is the site I am working on:

    In IE8 it looks like the css for the nav is totally ignored.
    Oh wait, maybe it is because you use <nav> </nav>
    instead of <div id=”nav”> </div>
    I’ll try to change that and if that’s the problem I’ll come back to this… (also of course if this didn’t help…)

    yes, this seems to be the trouble. Looks like IE8 an IE7 (and probably other older browsers as well, haven’t checked yet) don’t recognize your <nav> as a valid tag.

    yes, looked into it, it is the html5 tags you use (the aside gives the problems for the first posters sidebar (I don’t use the sidebar, so hadn’t noticed that one)
    this link might be of use?

    Yes, at this point in 2013, all my works are forward thinking. Besides the fact that I hate IE, I really do, as do most developers/designers, I don’t specifically neglect IE, I just design and code within standards compliance of HTML5 and CSS3 which even in latest versions of IE, happens to still be lacking.

    I also try to keep the code as pure as possible, not adding in browser hacks and the like. Another way to put it is that my work is standards-friendly, so in that effect, not IE-friendly. ;)

    Sorry. Happy to hear you’ve worked out a solution though.
