Microsoft sends flowers to IE 6 funeral

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.
