Your document did not comply to what IE8 expects in a HTML 4.01 strict
document. So it goes to "quirks mode" and in its glorious stupidity
reloads the page to do so.

Two things come to mind:

- don't remove the docstring, switch to the correct one - search the
  Intarweb thing for the correct one for IE8 "compatibility mode" and of
  course for your html

- I guess if the request leading to the zsql method that changed things
  in the database was called through a form (and not as a plain link)
  then maybe IE8 wouldn't try to reload

Good luck in any case!
