+1 to get KNL-697 in 2.8.0 and 2.8.0's rc04 tagged ASAP.

Preliminary testing reveals that both the FCKEditor and CKEditor need to be upgraded in order to address IE9 incompatibilities.  IE9-related tickets have also been filed against tools such as Messages and Forums and Profile2.

> My own view is that we should cut another release candidate this week in order for QA to test the KNL-697 patch; releasing sakai-2.8.0 without a workaround for IE9 incompatibilities will doom it to an early grave (when users subject it to IE9) and consign a good deal of release work to the category of wasted effort.
