IE8 jumbled map without compatibility view

I was very surprised not to find a post about this issue. For the past several months many of my users have been dealing with a problem that arises when accessing our JavaScript API applications using Internet Explorer 8. The tiled map services will appear jumbled in the map, like a jigsaw puzzle. The remedy is to activate the "Compatibility View" icon in IE8. As that icon is not activated by default, it causes our users great frustration. I am sure many assume the application is not functional and never return.

What is the source of this problem? Is there possibly something that is not configured correctly in ArcGIS Server? Am I the only one to experience this?
