As I may have mentioned, most of the (250-strong) company where I work
use it. Now, we also have a primarily academic audience, and NS4
(thankfully) has been cannibalised by Mozilla, Firefox and NS7. IE6
"only" has 52% of our browser share, with 5.0 and 5.5 making up 4.2%

You have to consider your audience. Ours is more non-M$ than most.
However, if you write your code properly, to *standards* (yes, that word
again), it will work in IE *and* NS. So, apart from a few box-model,
rendering and font-size issues, there's no problem.
