We have come across a problem where our responsive web sites are not displaying right on ie8.

Without writing an entirely separate css just for that browser is there an easy fix?

It's a six year old browser. It gets most things wrong. You can check specific features here: http://caniuse.com/

You can get reasonable results if you use a normalize CSS before your CSS. I find that CSS is less a problem that Javascript (e.g. no console, poor json support, etc.).

IE 1.0 runs responsive websites - it's all a matter of how complex you get.

The link I posted above shows that IE8 does not support media queries. Something like may be helpful.
