It looks like IE ignores it (in general IE is more tolerant of non-standard code), but as you've seen, Netscape renders it.
All in all, our sub-pages tend to rank higher than our index page, but I don't worry much about it. The keyword links may help the subpage rankings, and I don't really mind if someone enters our site from the front door or a side door, as long as stop by.
