I have saved a web page to my machine and I'm currently viewing it through IE8. I make some local changes and check how they look like through IE8. I am following this workflow because I am integrating an iframe hosted by another server. Whenever I'm accessing a live site, I can see the Compatibility View icon but while reading the local web page, the icon is not present.

With the above conditions and limitations, how can I view my saved web page through IE8's Compatibility View?

You can turn it off whenever you're finished.
