I strongly agree that MSIE 6 should be avoided, but for many company
networks it's required. The big problem isn't that 16% (or whatever)
of people use it, it's that while technical people will use a modern
and powerful browser, many non-technical managers will just use the
default settings/systems, and it gives a bad impression if when told
that "Haskell is a great tool" a manager looks up haskell.org and sees
a messy splat.

For reference, the new Haddock style also gives various rendering
issues in IE6. I reported these a while back (to Mark) but never got
any response.

Thanks, Neil
