Support for IE6 isn't feasible in this format?

In the section "Image Sprites" of this doc(
), Google


Support for IE6 isn't feasible in this format, because structural
changes to the DOM are necessary to implement a "windowing" effect.
Once it's possible to distinguish ie6 and ie7 in user.agent, we could
revisit support for ie6. In the current implementation, the ie6 code
won't render correctly, although is a purely cosmetic issue.


How do i understand why IE6 couldn't be supported? Does IE itself not
support CSS sprite? Does this mean I won't benefit from GWT's image
sprite feature if I want my application to run well on IE6?
Any reply will be appreciated.
