IE8 to IE7 Emulation

Hi there, I've been searching all over the internet for a solution to this problem but can't seem to find anything that solves it.

I got a masterform with the following code:

<%@ Master Language="C#" AutoEventWireup="true" CodeFile="FolderMasterForm2.master.cs" Inherits="FolderMasterForm2" %>

<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
<head id="Head" runat="server">
    <meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=EmulateIE7" />

and all the pages who use the masterform are supposed to be displayed in IE7-mode, but for some reason the internet browser ignores the IE7 emulation and displays it as IE8 as default. (I can go to the developer's menu and change it to IE7 and ti works, but I don't want my users to do this over and over again)

Any ideas why is the "content='IE=EmulateIE7'" code ignored?

ANY kind of help is much appreciated.
