IE6 grr - I need :first-child help!

Hi,

I have a real problem and I need some help! I have a content managed site where I cannot edit the HTML so my only options are javascript and CSS. I have a really simple menu which basically looks like this:-

<*ul>
<*li>First line<*/li>
<*li>Second line<*/li>
<*/ul>

(without the stars)

I want to make the first li display: none which I've done in with ul li:first-child {display: none} but of course this doesn't work in good old IE6!

Can anyone point me in the direction of a pure css/javascript way to do this? I've been all over google and a lot of people suggest adding a class (which I can't do because I can't edit the HTML) and the only JS way of doing it that I've found I can't make work :(

Any help would be appreciated!

Thanks :)
