Internet Explorer Compatibility View and Blackboard

If you are using Internet Explorer, Compatibility View can affect your use of Blackboard, and cause content not to display correctly.

In particular, the Blackboard login page will display incorrectly when Compatibility View is turned on, with text being difficult to read against the background image.
