Yes.  Although the marketeers dubbed the version following the 4 series Netscape
6, it is the fifth Navigator, and the version string acknowledges this fact.

I'd be curious to see what the version string for Netscape 7 will be -- will it
be Navigator 5.5, based on a slightly later branch of Mozilla from 6, Navigator
6, the next version from 5, or Navigator 7?  Whichever way it goes, I have a
feeling things are about to get a little (more) confusing. . . .
