IE compatibility mode and opening in a new window

Hi Guys,

I have an interesting problem to solve. I'm producing content that is running in a large corporation. Compatibility mode is on as default when using the LMS(Oracle iLearning) due to it being considered an intranet site. The content produced really needs to run in the highest version of IE available. Typically I would just run with the following line in the header to make this happen. <meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=edge" />

But... this line has no effect. This is due to the content being played within a frameset.

In the past I've gotten around this by opening a popup window from the frameset to run the content in a window free from the frameset and communicated via JavaScript to the parent for any SCORM calls. But this was using hand coded HTML5 content, not lectora.

Is there a way to do something similar in lectora?

I've noticed there is a publish setting "Launch course in separate window from LMS" but haven't noticed any change from when its selected or not. eg, the content is always in the frameset in my LMS and no new window is created.

I think the presence of the frameset is causing IE to set compatibility mode in a setting lower than the supported by lectora. I've seen users browser displaying in IE5 mode, but typically IE7 mode. But... this isn't always the case, some users are running in standards(IE10) mode.

If you can make any sense of this ramble you might be able to help.

Essentially I need a way of launching the content in a popup, so I can set the browser mode. IE7 just doesnt cut it when rendering content produced in Lectora.

Thanks as always,
