Problems with IE10 Quirks mode

Reported by: Benjamin Owned by:
Priority: Normal Milestone:
Component: General Version: 3.0
Keywords: IE10 Cc:


CKeditor 3.6.5 is not working in IE10 (Windows 7 and Windows 8) if there are no or wrong doctype declarations.

Internet Explorer 10 returns to Quirks mode if there are errors in the declaration of html doctype. In the IE10 Quirks mode CKEditor is not working.

<script type="text/javascript" src="ckeditor/ckeditor.js"></script>
	<textarea id="story" name="story" class=""></textarea>
	<script type="text/javascript" type="javascript">
		CKEDITOR.replace ('story');

This particular problem can be reproduced in IE10 only from CKEditor 3.0 - current trunk.

In CKEditor 4.x this particular problem does not occur but there are two others which were described here #9654 and #9655

The problem is that IE10 introduced a new kind of default quirks mode, which is totally different than the one in previous versions.

Right now, if you really wants quirks on your pages, the only solution is using a valid quirks (HTML4) doctype or use the "X-UA-Compatible" meta accordingly:

<meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=5">

Of course, we recommend going with a modern doctype (HTML5).

We fixed this in CKEditor 4.3.1 (#11182) or earlier.
