Stephen:

As Aaron rightly points out, SQL Server does not support forward compatibility. We fully support backward compatibility.

Thanks for writing in to Microsoft,

Cheers,

I don't think up-level support is there (or should be). Can you manage 2008 and 2008 R2 databases completely from 2005 SSMS? (Database compatibility level is irrelevant - it's the database structure and metadata that concerns SSMS.)
