Sharepoint 2010 Site Action Menu not working in IE 8/ IE 9 : Permanemt Fix

In March I wrote a post for enabling Site Menu when it is not working in IE 8/9.
That was not a permanent fix and I forgot to update that post with the Permanent Fix.1. Understanding the Issue.The issue we were facing was because the document mode in which IE was rendering the Page was different from the browser mode.2. Fix

Force IE to render in the desired mode. (Same thing we did in previous post, but this time using a meta tag)

To fix this issue :
1.  Edit Master page of your sharepoint site using Sharepoint Designer
2. Find ‘HEAD’ tag ()
3. Add given meta tag just below head tag

This will force IE to open in IE 9 mode. If you have IE 8 as your default document Type then change it accordingly.
