Layout bugs in IE8, what to do?

There is a calculator which is well displayed in modern browsers. But in a zombie ie8 is magic outside of Hogwarts! Why it disappeared :before and :after brackets have .brackets. Flew displaying absolutely positioned letters at the tables. Apparently position relative wants to apply. How can I improve this magic?

Solution
Because absolute positioning relative to the table has never worked adequately. This often had problems in ff and especially ie.

Wrap the table in additional containers, and making do through them. Leave tables for tabular data directly, not by introducing additional pseudo-elements without using absolute positioning.

Easier to score. Another reason for something normal to go. And it is possible and to impose under IE6

The same things are decided by the customer.
The contractor would have been glad to move on to something new and trendy.
But we live in a world that is based on software that is part of our life for decades.
It is not surprising that somewhere in the still functioning system, developed in 1970-ies.

Unexpectedly, right?
