I don't have ie8 installed (and in document mode 8 the popup works)

But here some points:

pretty much everybody forgot about ie6, and I would not be surprised that even the creator of lightbox didn't test his scripts against ie6 (could even be the same with ie8)


But, I find kinda weird that the id="popup" is inside a <td></td>, maybe that why ie8 have some difficulty to works



And since you are new to the web design world, here a tip: table isn't made for design, only to show a real table of data, at first it may be harder, but with time it will be worth it!
