For 2.8 RC6, we have a copule fixes for important issues affecting the
community. In general, I'd have avoided these issues in this late of an
RC, but they both seem low risk and high benefit.

 * IE8 VML support outside of compatibility mode
 * IE7 strict mode VML text
Additionally, we have:

 * Fix Opera 9.27 support
 * Fix for a minor ArcIMS / ARcXML issue.

The IE8 VML changes are more significant than I would generally allow
for a non-regression, but significant testing thanks to the community
makes me comfortable including the changes in 2.8.

I'd like to propose that once Andreas commits #1910, we roll on 2.8 RC6,
in hopes that it's our last our RC. (I think it better be at this point

 All in favor?
 All opposed?
