Hello Friends

Every browser does not support the all tag and blocks of HTML5, like IE. So, if you add simple code before body tag, then your code will be support all the browser.


Public repo for the latest HTML5 JavaScript shiv for IE to recognise and style the HTML5 elements.

<!--[if lt IE 9]>
<script src="//"></script>
Note that the protocol has been removed so you don't have to when including on an http or https page
