A message to IE 6.0 hard core users: AKA IE 7.0 non-compliance

Upgrade to Internet Explorer 7.0 NOW!  The message is more on directive rather than request.  In fact wired.com reported that Norwegian websites declared war to these IE 6.0 fanatics.

Several large websites in Norway have launched an advocacy campaign urging Microsoft Internet Explorer 6 users to upgrade their outdated web browsers.
