It depends on your target audience. If you know that NN4.x or lower won't
be used to browse your site at all, go for it. Alternatively, if you don't
feel like supporting NN4.x or lower either (as my company has started to
do), there's no reason you shouldn't use it. And IMHO it's much more
intuitive that using DHTML to scroll a DIV.
