In epiphany (webkit) it displays OK. 

You can always test on pages like

In general I'd say that MSIE should be avoided and updated to newer
version like 7 or 8 (according to wikipedia they should be avaible for
Windows XP - or at least they were available when Windows XP was
supported) - IE6 have technology from 2001. I understand however that it
may be outside your control (maybe portable Fx would be solution?)


PS. BTW - does anyone have statistics on browser share on Haskell site?
According to Wikipedia IE6 have still around 16% market share but I
guess it is lower here.
