I have a a form that is using the textboxwatermarkextender on all of the textboxes on the page (approx. 20 in total). I have one user (out of 20, all using IE8) that is having problems viewing the page correctly. On this particular users pc, about 5 of the
textboxes do not render correctly as the watermark does not display. I have found nothing different in the coding of these five controls. This page is integrated with an older site that uses frames (2 frames, a top and a bottom). When the page is opened by
itself without the frames, the page renders fine and all watermarks are shown. Using Firefox, the page renders correctly both with and without the frames. I have posted the complete error below. Has anyone ran into this before? Is there a setting that needs
to be changed within the IE8? I have uninstalled and reinstalled IE both this has solved nothing?

Is it possible that the docutype for your page (or master page) needs to be updated to handle IE8 compatibility mode?

I appreciate the response but this is not the problem.

Yesterday I encounterd the same problem with loading a page with an MaskedEditExtender in an i-frame. I don't know whether you already have a solution, but what worked for me was setting the Enable property of the extender to false in the design mode and
in the page onload event putting the focus at an element containg the extender and then setting the Enable property of the extender to true.
tblContainer.Focus(); // element containg the Extender object 'MskdEdtExtndr'
MskdEdtExtndr.Enabled = true;
