I wouldn't.  The browsers' digest authentication implementations are still
pretty quirky.  I've read that the IE implementation in particular does not
match the spec.

I agree with Owen that it may be a good idea to rearrange the locations of
the directories.  Netscape may be confused by having to send auth
information for supporting files (images, etc) if the HTML is outputted from
a different directory structure.
