This may not actually be a docutils bug, but given the
popularity of IE6, you may want to work around it (or
maybe not). Anyway, HTML produced by
writer.html4css1 (from a just-downloaded development
snapshot) is not displayed by IE6 if the HTML has a
<title/> tag (in the head section). After changing such
a tag to <title></title>, the document displays
correctly.
