Along with every Web developer on Earth, I hate IE6. This thing is the cause for so much re-work and so much needless fiddling around.
We had an internal debate here about when to stop supporting it. We didn’t really come to an absolute decision on it, but Joe did come up with an interesting idea:
How about if you put a line-item in a bid for IE6 support? So, your Web site will cost $X, and IE6 support will be an additional $1,500, or whatever.
This could be varied by how complex the design is, and how much IE6-hacking we think we’re going to need to do.
I really think IE6 would come into perspective for a lot of people if they could put a hard number on how much it’s costing them.
