Google Maps - IE 8 - Click Position


The position (point) returned by the click event on Google Maps in Internet Explorer 8 is incorrect - at least in some configurations.

The recommendations I have found so far are to remove the DOCTYPE tag or to add in the compatibility meta tag for IE, to be honest I'm not sure which is worse!!
