Browser testing results in Win XP IE 8

I absolutely love your Wicker product- especially when viewing in the most up to date browsers. But I started testing the site on BrowserStack's browser tests, I see a number of issues with the layout and formatting.
Does Wicker support IE 8?

IE, especially IE8 is a dying browser. The decision remains whether to invest time to fix things for a browser that wont be around any longer in another year, vs concentrating on forward thinking browsers. The more time I spent fixing junk on browsers that are old, the less time I have to dedicate the current and future projects.

Yeah dont get me wrong IE is everywhere, still. I do have browserstack, and I do try to fix the obnoxious things when they pop up. I'll at least take a look at Wicker and see if we can do anything.

Keep in mind that (despite government recommendations and guidance) a vast number of public sector environments in the UK are still using IE6 (it is the default in the NHS) let alone seeing IE8 as old.
