Technically and in terms of content the page is well done, congrats. :)
However, as I have to login to post a comment (and I don't want to
register), my comment is here:

"...The fact is, IE6 is not that hard to code for, ..."

Actually, _that_ is the very problem. No real IE hate here, but there
is a more or less clear way things should be: There are standards, and
there are browsers that should implement them. Having "to code for" a
given browser simply is neither what is intended in this technology nor
what is desirable either for developers or for users. That said, I
share the opinion of the site you quoted about "giving up IE6" and,
though in a kind way, asking people to please use a better browser. ;)

Just my $0.02, of course...
