I put the temperatures sample code on my server at the following location:

for some reason, the lines do not draw in IE 8 even though I have the latest code, excanvas and the meta tag. (view source)

Can anyone tell me why this does not work in IE8? The lines do not draw.  My Browser Mode and Document Mode both are set to IE8. 

Everything works fine in Chrome. 

Thanks for any suggestions

to Doug Wolfgram,
Try waiting until the DOMContentReady event has fired to add your chart. It's possible that excanvas isn't ready yet when you construct your dygraph.

That was it. Since I use jquery in may main application I got lazy and used jquery to wait until document is ready here as well. But nonetheless, it works. it is usually better to have your js at the top of your file anyway for standards compatibility issues.  

Now I have to figure out why my MAIN application doesn't work in IE8. :) Another long problem since it is so complex.

Thanks for the quick help!
