I have a strange problem happing in one of my customers intranet site. We have an Asp.net application installed in the customers Server IIS and clients access the server using Internet Explorer 8.
If the client access the intranet site using the server's name, example http://myservername/myapplicationname/pagename.. they can access the site but some of the page layout breaks. Example some of the controls does not display inline and wraps on the page.
If the client access the site using the IP address of the server, the pages does not break.
they are using Internet Explorer 8 and it does not matter if Compatibility mode is on or off.

IE8 will show intranet sites in IE6 mode by default. To fix this add this to the top of the web page to force it to use IE8 mode. I would add it to the top of the master page for the site
<meta http-equiv="x-ua-compatible" content="IE=8">

I tried your suggestion but still no luck.
What I don't understand is that when the IP Address is used instead of the server's name the page displays correctly!

Not sure why the tag is not working. I would check and make sure the web page is not being shown in compatibility mode there is button in the url bar in ie. It does sound like the page is being shown with ie6 html
