See more: Javascript IE8 IFrame
Here's a sample code:
<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<head>
<title></title>
<script>
function on_iframe_load() {
    document.getElementById('iframe_a').onload = function() {
        alert('Thanks for the visit!');
    };
}
</script>
</head>
<body>
<iframe name="iframe_a" id="iframe_a"></iframe>
<a href="http://www.example.com/" target="iframe_a"  onclick="on_iframe_load();">Go!</a>
</body>
</html>
It works in all major browsers with no problem, but IE8 (and probably prior versions) don't understand it.
Any cross-browser solution?
Thanks!

Did you try it on a real IE8 or an emulator? Did you see the alert box?

I tried by setting the Browser Mode in IE9...
Tried with IE7, IE8 Mode..!
