Check if the browser is using IE8

<!--[if IE 8]> 
	<script src="_ie8.js"></script>

This stylesheet will only display to IE9 or above, along with every other non-IE browser. Notice opening and closing expressions are wrapped in comments.

<!--[if gt IE 8]><!-->
	<script src="_nonIe8.js"></script>

**Make sure the src path reference begins with a slash (/scripts/myscript) and not use the root tilde reference. This (~) doesn’t seem to work within the conditional hthml.

HTML5 shim and Respond.js IE8 support of HTML5 elements and media queries. This is for Bootstrap 3 support.

<!--[if lt IE 9]>
	<script src="~/../Scripts/html5shiv-3.7.0.js"></script>
	<script src="~/../Scripts/respond.min-1.4.2.js"></script>
	<link href="~/../Content/bootstrap-glyphicons.css" rel="stylesheet" />
