Found this tip over on The Admin Zone.  It’s a quick bit of HTML that will show a message to visitors using IE6.

<!--&#91;if IE 6&#93;>
<div style="background:#C00;color:white;font:16px arial;padding:6px 12px;display:block!important;" mce_style="background: #C00; color: white; font: 16px arial; padding: 6px 12px; display: block!important;"><strong>&#91;INSERT YOUR SITE&#93; no longer supports Internet Explorer 6.</strong>

We strongly recommend you upgrade your browser for additional functionality and better Internet experience.

Download the latest version of <a href="http://www.mozilla.com/firefox/" mce_href="http://www.mozilla.com/firefox/" style="color:white;" mce_style="color: white;">Firefox</a>
or <a href="http://www.google.com/chrome" mce_href="http://www.google.com/chrome" style="color:white;" mce_style="color: white;">Google Chrome.</a></div>
< !&#91;endif&#93;-->

It looks like the following, although I took out the conditional tags so everyone can see it. Feel free to change the message if you want to be a little less tactful.

[INSERT YOUR SITE] no longer supports Internet Explorer 6.
