In Seattle, "IE6" was a trending topic on Twitter thanks to a CNN story on Aten Design Group's funeral for Internet Explorer 6. The tongue-in-cheek memorial is happening this evening in Denver.

Those mourning the antiquated Web browser, but unable to attend, were asked to send flowers. So, guess who sent flowers.

Microsoft.

In the twitpic photo above, a funeral guest is showing off the card that arrived with Microsoft's bouquet. It's a little hard to read, so I asked Microsoft to confirm the text. (Microsoft also confirmed it indeed sent the flowers).

The card reads:

Thanks for the good times IE6, see you all @ MIX when we show a little piece of IE Heaven.

The Internet Explorer Team @ Microsoft

Touché, Microsoft. Touché.
