There are many problem reports and MS knowledge base entries about
this, but it is often unclear to which version of MSIE6 they apply.
Most problems are (or should be) fixed with the MSIE6 from XP SP2.
From my personal experience however, in some cases a fully patched
MSIE6 (in september) would sporadically not use the css and display a
garbled page, although it worked when reloaded. From tcpdumps I could
not see a difference between the working and non working cases.
The problems went away when I disabled compression for text/css,
On this particular problem, I don't have more information. Older
versions of MSIE6 have a lot more problems than this, so what you do
always depends on how many clients you can afford to lock out.
