The exact error in IE is:
User Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 8.0; Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; Trident/4.0; SLCC2; .NET CLR 2.0.50727; .NET CLR 3.5.30729; .NET CLR 3.0.30729; Media Center PC 6.0; .NET4.0C)

Message: 'classList' is null or not an object
Steps to replicate:
2) Load up a course in IE8
3) Turn on course editing
4) Try and indent anything.
The item would indent on the page without reloading.
I believe the 'resource_class.prototype.indent_left' and 'resource_class.prototype.indent_right' functions in lib/ajax/section_classes.js need to be changed to not use classList in order to fix this.
