if you use ie9 then most of your css design issues will be resolved.
To make everything browser compatible you need to be an expert in CSS or you can ask your designer to check and resolve browser issue making changes at css.
For the time being you can try it:

Response.AppendHeader("X-UA-Compatible", "IE=EmulateIE7");
write this line in your Page_Load
and check.

Thanks,
Sanjay

Let say while you develop the application your browser is ie7
But you donot know client will use ie7 , ie8 or ie9 or other browser(s)
If client uses IE8/IE9 your code might create some design issue.
To avoid that the above line will force the client browser to use ie7 compatibility mode.

Thanks,
Sanjay
