An important point to remember is that Netscape 6 uses betas of Mozilla's
Gecko engine. The first non-beta appeared in Netscape 7. Anyone using
Netscape 6 is being extremely foolish: it uses a version of Gecko that has
many bugs; and it has uncorrected security vulnerabilities.
I believe that sites should support all browsers used by a significant
number of visitors -- even to the extent of supporting the dwindling number
of IE4 and NN4 users -- but I draw the line at betas: I do not support
betas that have been superceded by official releases. Perhaps you may want
to consider doing the same, instead displaying a message advising Netscape
6 users that they upgrade to a more stable browser.
