I have to chime in here and emphatically agree with this.  Yesterday morning
I was furious after viewing one of my latest and greatest page revisions in
NN6.  After checking the code and minor tweaks it looks great and 24 hours
later I can honestly say NN6 isn't that bad.

NN6 forced me to examine my code a little closer and fix some things.  Now
it looks fine in MSIE 5.0, NN6, and NN 4.7

One of the most common things I changed in all of my pages was the DTD
declaration from strict to transitional.  In almost every case that was the
only thing I changed and my pages now look perfect.  Whether that's a
legitimate fix or just a work around, doesn't really matter to me.

So, once again check your code, run it through Tidy maybe, then run it
through a validator.  Only then can the problems be blamed on NN6.
