Since this is relating to CSSOM and HTML5 which IE8 will not support and 
since IE8 'doesn't' have the 'hasLayout' hack/bug [1] why not just 
ignore what IE5~IE7 does. Then the quirks mode of IE9 will be IE8 
standard mode behavior. This seems the sensible approach for 

IE8 still has the old bug [2] where the background-color doesn't begin 
at the border box (this may be corrected in a later beta ???) but does 
this also apply for in IE8 when the parent has a border? I can not test 
locally anymore. :-)
