MS IE9 Compatability Mode

Just a scratch note regarding the “user agent” string impact when toggling the page compatability mode using IE9…

Compatability Mode: Disabled

Mozilla/5.0 (compatible; MSIE 9.0; Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; Trident/5.0)

Compatability Mode: Enabled

Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 7.0; Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; Trident/5.0; SLCC2; .NET CLR 2.0.50727; .NET CLR 3.5.30729; .NET CLR 3.0.30729; Media Center PC 6.0; InfoPath.3; .NET4.0C; .NET4.0E)

The “WOW64” indicates 64-bit Windows.  “Windows NT 6.1” denotes Windows 7. I’m not sure what “SLCC2” means, but the .NET CLR and Media Center chunks should be obvious.  Hmm.
