Off topic, but do you still need to support IE6?
The article hax1 came up with is dated almost four years ago and already then IE7 had been out for quite some time. Honestly, anyone still using IE6 today is probably several years behind with respect to security updates of all kind (e.g. they may be running Win2000 or WinXP SP1 or something, or see http://www.atomicfission.com/index.php/white-papers/42-information-security/84-evaluating-ie6-risks ). Agreed, IE6 is officially supported as long as XP SP3 is (i.e. April 2014), but bigger sites have already started phasing out IE6 support (some parts of Google did so almost two years ago)
