problem with IE8 and second keystroke in a cell

Have anyone come across this issue before?

Grid Version: 2.5.3

The grid doesn't recognize the second keystroke in IE8. It also works fine if the user types in more than 2 char. It works fine in Firefox.

ie: If I type 10 -> 1; 23 -> 2; 45 -> 4; etc.

I've used the following code to track the problem:

grid.onCellTextChanged = function(text, column, row){


The results as I type 123 are as follows
1 char typed -> 1
2 char typed -> no alert
3 char typed -> 123

I will have to test this on IE7.

If anyone knows why IE8 is causing this issue, please let me know.

Found a workaround

<!-- Mimic Internet Explorer 7 -->
<meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=EmulateIE7" >

Added the IE7 compatibility and is now working.

I am experiencing a problem with this too.
Where does the workaround go?

I tried the above fix and am still having the same problem when using IE8 - other browsers are fine.

If the user types in ".5" the input is "."

any ideas/fixes?

I just downloaded 2.5.5 and this is STILL happening - even with the <meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=EmulateIE7" > fix.
We've got a client now on IE8 - any fixes?
