i am unable to find a way to configure the vs2008 "design" view to represent html and css in a way that represents an ie8 rendering of my web page. is there a setting in vs2008 i am missing?
note: i have found that when i click on the "compatibility view" in ie8, i see a closer represention of what i see in the vs2008 design view.

Design view is to give you an idea of what it will look like. I believe it is independant of IE.

that was not my understanding when purchasing the product, microsoft advertises wysiwyg. see What's New in Visual Studio 2008, http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb386063.aspx
Visual Studio 2008 now has a rich CSS editing experience with several new tools to make working with cascading style sheets (CSS) easier than ever. Much of the work designing the layout and styling content can be done in Design view using the CSS Properties
grid, the Apply Styles and Manage Styles panes, and the Direct Style Application tool. You can also change positioning, padding, and margins in Design view using WYSIWYG visual layout tools."
